At least that is what all the bailouts by our federal government are telling us. All US corporations have always supported minimal government regulation. That has always been the Mantra of conservative republicans and corporate America in this nation. Then can anyone explain why our federal government is endlessly bailing out corporations and taking them over? That is socialism, not capitalism! I can understand bailing out Fanny Mae and Freddy Mack. They were started & backed by our government since their inception. But it now appears to me that any large US corporation will be bailed out. Anyone who supports that is not truly a supporter of free market capitalism and can never again criticize government regulation or intervention....NEVER! I have stated before that recessions are supposed to happen. That they are GOOD for our economy as they stabilize all the inequities and restore confidence so we can build upon a solid foundation. If our government continues to bail out companies like Lehman, Ford, GM, etc., what will we have to build upon? I'll tell what, a new socialist economy funded by our tax dollars. This recession SHOULD have been one of the biggest re-distributions of wealth in our history and hopefully, it still will be. We don't always need taxes to re-distribute wealth. When too many dollars end up in the hands of the few, the mega-wealthy, a correction will take place. One that is needed. Also, when too many dollars end up in the coffers of the few mega-corporations, a correction will take place...BUT, it won't happen if our government insists on protecting the wealthy and stopping this mass re-distribution of wealth. I could not believe I read that Reuters believes Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson went to Wall Street for advice on bailing out Lehman; "Several financial experts said Paulson, a former Goldman Sachs chairman, was likely calling friends on Wall Street asking what people know, who is exposed and how much loss they are willing to take." Talk about our government officials being in bed with corporate America! The time for revolution is coming.
