Is anyone else at all concerned at the increased roll the government is taking in American businesses? The CEO of GM essentially being forced out by the Obama administration. This is the type of stuff that's happening in Venezuela. How long before the government just starts taking over these industries?
And here are some very disturbing numbers from recent Rasmussen polls. 61% of Americans think the government should regulate pay and bonuses to executives if their company has taken government bailouts, or as they're now known, purchase bids.
30% of Americans think the government should have a say in how much actors and athletes are payed.
14% of Americans think people who earn $1m or more a year should have a tax rate of 90%.
Why are these numbers disturbing? Because they show that many Americans support a more powerful, omnipresent government with increasing say in how our daily lives should be run. This is some scary shit. How far are these people willing to go and how much are they willing to let go of just so they can have a since of stability in their lives?
