True or false: State intervention tends to enable big business at citizens expense

Just curious what the general feel across the board on this particular question is.


The real phrasing of the question is as follows (character space constraints):

True or False:
State intervention tends to enable big buisiness at the expense of labor and consumers.

First.

Of course you already know the outcome of this poll.

Think back just a week or two ago. There were only 8 of us willing to identify ourselves as Democrats vs. 55 others.

The population of ChiefsPlanet is hardly representative of the nation. In fact, I doubt you could find a state that's ever been this red.

Chiefs red - how appropriate.

...

You want a poll with some teeth?

How about this: "IS THE POPE TOAST?"

I doubt that is a valid poll. It's hard to believe the ratio of liberal to other is 8:55. My read is that some of the liberals here are falling away from the party due to the current state of affairs.

That's because they think Obama is too centrist.

I know the outcome of this poll because any honest evaluation of the question will come out to be "true."

Wow, some have a lot to learn. They have free-market capitalism confused with mercantilism and corporatism. Just like Marx had it confused.

This question reveals the core weakness (hypocrisy) of Democrat politics.

Are you talking about the fact that the health care bill is a corporate give away, and thus at this moment it's loaded because it's on the front of everyone's mind?

You had an idea in your head, and you wanted to confirm it in a way that makes you win. And no, I'm not talking about the health care bill because you said "state intervention". Perhaps you forgot what issue you were sucking off now?

Problems aren't black and white. What does "tend to" mean? 50%? 75%? I don't give a ****%?

Yes, certain state decisions do favor businesses, although I again don't have an idea in hell what "big" means. There are also state decisions that favor consumers.

You do the same thing every time you post. You make some outrageous argument, support it as far as your brain allows, and then run off saying well if that's what you believe, this isn't worth my time.

WoodDraw, Taco is right on this. You may not like it, seeing your emotional outburst but it's true. We HAVE a mixed economy and that means it has state capitalism and mercantilism as a part of it.

And you know what, it isn't worth hours of time defending it with certain people because no one is going to change their mind.
And there's a limit to how much one can say on a BB in order to educate them. The case can only be built systematically and that
takes a book or classroom instruction.

What would be worth a few minutes of your time would be to stop by this thread and post your recently-informed thoughts.
