If libertarianism helps the mega-corporations
Why don’t think they support libertarian candidates?
Oh that’s right, because libertarianism hurts the mega-corporations because they are supported by the government.
I think it comes down to libertarians believing they are supporting the free market. I don’t think some libertarians even look at crony capitalism. Its is all capitalism with nothing less or more. Seance its capitalism, even crony capitalism. It is all good in the end.
If presidential candidates were elected based on how well they rewarded their political donors, then Texas Governor Rick Perry would lead the pack. Since 2001, more than a fifth of the $83 million in campaign donations received by Perry have come from his past and present political appointees. In 2009, the group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washigton cited his administration’s rampant cronyism in naming him to its “Worst Governors” list. A recent analysis of Perry’s 150 largest political donors by the LA Times found that more than half of them received hefty business contracts, tax breaks, or appointments from the governor. Here are ten Perry supporters who’ve been handsomely repaid for their patronage:

I have strong feelings, why the government is now going after so called illegal dealings at banks. Is a way of closing any bank they the government do not like. Then also to limit the compaction and create more monopoly crony capitalism .

Am I being paranoid?

Many of these firms cost American taxpayers several hundreds of thousands of dollars per job created.
