    Wall Street and the government are one entity at this point. You know what the technical definition of that is? Yeah, fascism.

    •  That's not really true (0+ / 0-)

      The quote that is supposedly from Mussolini is actually apocryphal. He never said that, and corporatismo is not corporotism as we would think of it, it is closer to what Hobbes lays out in Leviathan. Fascism is more than just joined government and corporations.

      If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.

      •  It's close enough for me. (0+ / 0-)

        Defending the theft of our freedom by the government is not a legitimate difference of opinion on a political matter -- it is a deeply un-American attitude that deserves nothing but scorn and derision.--Dallasdoc
