Many people assume that if we only took power away from the federal government, it would return to them and they would be freer and more prosperous. They forget about the power of the modern corporation.

If you take power away from the federal government in economic affairs, it goes directly to the giant corporations. The inability to see or the refusal to admit this is perhaps the most fundamental fallacy behind modern conservatism, not only the extreme right wing.

This is not true of every law or regulation but it is true of many, including banking and financial sector regulation, the oil industry, the insurance industry and many others. Together, these sectors comprise most of our economy. Yet people whose interests are directly opposed to those of the giant corporations continue to vote for politicians who serve the interests of those corporations. Doing that makes no sense.

If you are one of those people who think that a smaller federal government necessarily makes you more free: why do you think that, considering the power of corporations in our 21st-century economy?

Hey, don't worry about making sense. Just keep swigging the Kool-Aid.

I ask again: if you take power away from the government, where does it go? It's a serious question that has a lot to do with our country's future.

It should scare the hell out of you that this isn't a main topic in politics. It's not even discussed. If we don't deal with this, we are headed for big trouble.
