    I think he is trying too hard to make everyone happy, he needs to stop trying to compromise and just do what he thinks is best for the country instead of what he thinks will get him elected.

    You don't seem to understand very much. Life for example. Businesses are eager for your business. You need only come and make your selections. Then pay for them.

    Government interference may usually be found where the prices are high and choices are limited. You are free to start a business, constrained only by government.

    Government....not business, sets the regulation and the tax rates that encourage or discourage business creation. Move away from your dark, liberal hate and into the light of conservatism.

    Maybe someone should show you this new thing, we call it the Internet. Anyone can publish. And anyone does.

    Perhaps. Politicians shake down businesses. They use the tax code. Perhaps now is a good time to join me in pushing for the Fair tax.

    Do you buy things? Do you benefit from your purchases? Was it a voluntary exchange?

    Just guessing but perhaps it is due to piracy? Do you think you have a right to steal the work of others? If so why?

    I see the dirty ugliness of your spirit peaking through. Do you believe you should be able to steal whatever your heart desires?

    Government exists to help us to protect our property from people just like you. It is clear why we need it.

    You have so little respect for your country and i's system of Government that your avatar mocks your President. How can we take this poll seriously?

    In the past you have posted cartoons of President Obama depicted as a monkey--why would you think you're worthy of a serious response or discussion on Obama's policies?

    In answer to your three questions: No, but no politician can, either. Yes, by controlling prices, only instead of the money being used to benefit the population, it just goes into his pocket. Yes, by using his wealth and power to compel politicians into passing laws that take away my rights and criminalize activities that he thinks will take away his profits. Why do you think all of this massive anti-piracy legislation is going on? Do you think that the people demand it? Do you foolishly believe that the industries are suffering from internet piracy? No, it comes from the wealthy owners wanting more and more money.

    No right on paper means anything unless you have the power to exercise it. We have rights in our interactions with government. We have none in our interactions with business, save those that we use government to safeguard. And those latter rights are dwindling.
    either you control the situation or the situation controls you. some people blame their lack of control on some "powerful forces" that are allied against them. At one time those forces were "free masons" than "Papists" then "Jewish Bankers" and "Skull and Bonesmen" and "Trilateral Commission Members"

    Corporations are often a target too
