  •  Government regulation (0+ / 0-)

    The problem that I see with your premise of gov't regulation is what you have stated; i.e.,

    There is much more power in the country influencing presidential and congressional actions than is understood by most. They are only interested in acquiring in exhaustible wealth, no matter how much others suffer.
    Money controls politics right now. As long as the government has a monopoly on power, that is where the money is going to go. And with the (thus far) successful strategy of dividing the US people against itself, we cannot hope to concentrate enough power to compete until we can stop hating each other. So giving more power to the government at this juncture in time is essentially giving that power to the corporations and power centers. That is why I am against increasing government reach - at least for now.
