    Many of the same people on the Right, who decry social welfare programs as Marxist etc...seem to have no problem when it come to our government giving away huge amounts of money & tax breaks to wealthy corporations? Other than the humanitarian component of social welfare, which should give it the moral "High Ground",... I see them both as exactly the same...namely a collective investment we make to hopefully get a monetary return on the money we spend.

    Please explain how they are different & why one is good & the other bad.

    Like most Reaganites, they believe Big Corp is their salvation, yet they ignore the fact that Big Corp sold out America.

    They have dreams of one day, when they grow up and win the lotto or some huge award because of the civil suit they will file because they fell in a hole caused by a large, big pocketed corporation or were hit by a semi owned by some multinational corp (please know that tort reform is only for the other guy), being one of those investors who doubles their money in the stock markets investing in those publicly traded corporations.



    Everyone knows, it takes money to make money, their day will come.



    I do firmly believe their day will come.
