2. So very true. St. Ronnie began preporting that the govt was just a big business. Not so.

Very different entities with very different goals. Ever since Merika has bought that lie, our country has gone straight down hill. Business's (capitalism) main objective is to MAKE a profit. Govt's main objective is to maintain public goodwill via legislation. Regulations are necessary; business finds them "restrictive" (they cost money that cuts into profits).
We need to push back on this idea that govt is a business everyday to change the whole idea back to what will support the true growth of our nation, not just the bottom line of corporations.
