I was listening to the radio yesterday and heard the term Corporatists for the first time. I thought what a great term! It describes the leaders of our Federal government perfectly. Here is a link that looks good.
The Coporatists wing of the Political spectrum runs both the Democrat and Republican parties. It goes a very long way in explaining why "Republicans" or "Republican appointed Justices" aren't willing to stop the spread of "Socialism" as well as the approach Obamacare takes at trying to achieve its goals.
Why would Corporatists want to increase social spending? So that the cost of supporting their workers can be shifted to the government! Why force people to buy insurance instead of simply running healthcare directly? The government is used to funnel money out of the pocket of the common man into the pockets of big business. Those who can afford to pay for their premiums can pay out of pocket, those who can't will be funded with government money (you know money taken from those citizens who have money).
No matter who gets elected, you will always get a Corporatists! They also go under the name of Statists! How can you use the government to funnel money into the pockets of big business if the government doesn't have the power to do so?
As long as people buy the Democrat vs Republican facade, there will be no real change.
