    No.
    Both lower taxes, and lower spending.

    Of course, I mean for everyone, being ethical and all.

    Have you found one that allows for the bailout and partial ownership of corporations?
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Yes. All of them

    Can you name a capitalist nation that does not allow for bailouts and partial ownership of corporations by the govt?

    Even our constitution allowed the formation of the Post Office, which is a private corporation owned by the govt

    I could not agree more .. Capitalism as it is theorized and as capitalists believe it should exit ... has never existed ... also I doubt the supporters of the theory would enjoy living in a world run run by the theory ... what a disaster that would be! We'd end up with one large corporations (or a small handful; i.e. monopolies) producing poor products and poor wages (except for the owners of course). Regulation is a necessary evil (so to speak).

    Corporations don't have rights. Only individuals possess rights.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    that's actually not correct. Corporations have many of the same rights as a "person".

    While this should be true ... unfortunately Corporations are actually treated as though they were individuals with rights. However, an interesting little known fact is that when the corporation screws up and kills, hurts, etc others, they are not held accountable.
