It's not rubber stamping it's a correct description of what type of economics it is, especially when you insist on it at the national level for local areas.
You just don't like it's proper name.
In your world of ridiculous absolutes where you are completely against government or else... Yes. But that is a stupid standard. I hate a lot of public projects, hate the inefficiency government, and believe in the private sector. I am also not clueless that government can enable me to do some things that I couldn't previously do. I expect potholes to be fixed and roads to be plowed, and I know that point to point travel is light years behind what you can do in other countries.
