    You Lefties are really incredible. I'm serious. You wanna go through the bidding process, knowing before-hand that only one company can qualify to bid on the contract and that you will end up awarding the contract to that company, anyway, thinking that somehow that's going to end corruption and corporatism?

    In a case like that, the real corruption would be the government waste that comes out of it.

    Your boy hired a tax evader for treasury secretary. Alot of the tax and spend crwod couldn't be appointed to posts within the PBOA, because of criminal activity and you say that we're outright in favor of corruption and coporatism?

    You don't even know what corporatism is, do you? Your boy is the biggest corporatist that's ever sat in the Oval Office.

    Never said they were--except that they're not facists--but you seem to think your side is spotless and they're far from it. Did you google corporatism to find out who the real corporatists are?

    Government support of business interests through tax revenue without competitive bids isn't an aspect of fascism?

    Damn liberal hypocrisy...err, wait....
    So you never ripped Bush or his administration over Haliburton?

    Are you sure about that?

    Just because there is only one person in running for the contract does not mean that there are not negotiations between the government and the said company about the cost.

    Don't you think it would be better for the government to have some say in the price since there will be no competition in bids? Otherwise, the company might decide to bid double what it would actually cost, and since there are no other companies, it could result in drastic overpayment.
