    I agree with some regulation. Safety gear such as steel toe boots, hard hats etc etc should be enforced. Companies shouldn't be spilling toxic chemicals into our rivers and streams. There is good regulation.

    There is also a lot of overregulation that needs to go away. People and corporations need to stop thinking that the government will take care of them.

    The most important role of government is to protect freedom.

    Typical anti-poor rhetoric. Businesses have to regulated or they will lie, cheat, and steal. Also ... as to your comment about children. You are WRONG. You can deny it all you want but it is a known historical fact. Business owners have been always be elitest scum who need to spend life in prison.

    WRONG. They lay people off because they are greedy ****holes who want their bonuses.

    Big government is just as corrupt as big business if not more so.

    It's government that bails out failed businesses. In a free market they would be left out to dry and the competition would take their business.

    I'd fight like a Spartan for my country's businessmen. I wouldn't piss on a politician if he were engulfed in a Library of Alexandriaesque fire.

    That's pure rhetoric.

    Without their corruptive influence there would be a good, strong, economy.

    Then you have sold your soul to the devil. Those who live by the sword of corruption often fall victim to it. Remember this conversation when the business scum you love do much **** you like a 2 dollar whore and kick you to the curb.
