LOL, I love how naive people have become. The simple idea that the government and economics are seperated is a joke. The Republicans belive government should always be stimulating the economy, with tactics such as trickle-on, oh, I mean trickle-down economics. I have no problem with Republicans believing this, just don't be so damn contradict of yourselves. "Seperation of government and economics", HA. Oh yeah, Bush's tax refund to stimulate the economy is a seperation? And BTW, may we dare remember what the time when there was a seperation was like. You need only look at William Randolph Hearst. Tell those from the depression era that government shouldn't get involved. Tell the children forced to work in sweatshop labor that government shouldn't get involved. YES, let them do what they want. This is a world where corporations can, and should do what they want. Much better world, yeah, right. People, the ends do not justify the means.
You don't seem to realize that our entire legal system is based off vague interpretations. It's how it has worked for 200 years. Just look at tort law. Some people are more guilty than others, and that determines outcomes (VERY vague summary of tort law, sorry).
The legal system is not just "so and so is guilty" and "so and so isn't." Many of us have broken many laws, yet never get prosecuted, does this mean the law should be thrown away? NO SPEED LIMITS BECUASE I HAVEN'T GOT CAUGHT, YIPPEE!
I see many laws as immoral, such as banning gays from getting married, but that doesn't mean you are free from prosecution if you break them.
And I am sick of the "Democrats are pro-government" statements. Both parties are. Actually, classic Conservatives are still quite for local government. But modern day conservatism wants just DIFFERENT government control. Liberals tend to believe in more fiscal (your hard earned money) control, while modern Conservatives believe in more social control (freedoms).
WOW, I was baffled by your statement that Karl Marx is one of the most evil people ever. WHAT!?!?! Have you actually studied any form of Marxism, or any other theory or field of study he developed? He is considered one of the greatest sociologists EVER! And never think Stalin followed Marx's Communism, Russia used the flawed system of Socialist Communism, just read George Orwell's "Animal Farm".
And I'm sorry to say, Jobs doesn't suck at business (oh no, don't confuse me with a Mac addict). But he virtually single-handedly saved Apple in the 90's. Ideas such as the iBook and iMac have revolutionized the computer industry. And the reason they didn't fill Microsoft's slot is because they follow different codes of ethics. Apple nearly killed itself after Jobs left, and they tried to "open up" Apple to clones. Nearly killed them.
One more point, why should the government step in with the Firestone/Ford cases??? Consumers chose to buy those cars, oh well, they paid a little less because of some cut corners, government stay out, Ford/Firestone didn't force consumers to use their products! (this is being sarcastic people)
