The GOP is no longer interested in supporting true and consistent conservative values... they are now sold out to the rule of an oligarchy of the wealthy... and the self-interests of those who view the world through the eyes of a new age aristocracy... They see a New World Order where a few control the many.
Neither party is the party of our founding father's principals or Godly precepts for government... the fair-minded, independent entrepreneur, who only reaps where he has sown, and pursues their commercial interests using an equal scale and just measure... adding value to the market place with each exchange...NO LONGER EXISTS. Today, the world of commerce is driven by greed and avarice ... from both ends of the political scale. Godly commerce and government no longer exist in America and may never return, given the current rate of corruption found in the world.
The days of reaping wealth from the market place by adding value has been replaced... with new principals. Principals that maximize profit, by charging whatever the market may bear, without adding real value to the market. Taking profits where the value-added is less than the wealth reaped, results in distorted markets; whereby, those with power and position reap where they have not sown, and those unable to defer their purchases pay more than necessary for the goods they receive.
Modern markets leverage position and power to reap windfalls in profit... profit not earned or acquired through adding real value to the market is paid for by the poor and those unable to access other sources to supply their needs. Inequities in markets are distorted, and leveraged to extract maximum profits with as little value added to the market as necessary.
Today, it is considered good business practice to take advantage of market distortions and consumers... This practice is easily recognized in the energy, food, electronics, clothing, and manufacturing markets, as the prices of goods soar; while, the value, and quality, of the goods produced, are trimmed, disguised and otherwise devalued, in order to reap greater profit margins with less effort and expense.
We are living in an age of corruption... which not only affects government but whose long reach has impacted our culture and its commercial interests. Godly commerce and government no longer exist. Capitalism and our economy are becoming the enterprise of a new age aristocracy. Capital and labor are at odds when they should be mutually supporting the common good. Greed and avarice reign king, in the market place, as the captains of commerce see nothing improper about charging all they can without adding real value to the market. Labor likewise, seeks to accrue income without adding adequate production, to earn such incomes.
Finally, the welfare state is nothing more than the epitome of greed and avarice... whereby, the poor extort and otherwise abuse the charity of others, using the power of government to redistribute the labor of their neighbor for their own purposes... more greed and avarice.
The solution to the problem... is for our nation and its people to RETURN TO THE PRECEPTS OF OUR FOREFATHERS and the fundamentals of our once CHRISTIAN NATION and GOD. Godly governments and commerce require a godly people and culture. Until America returns to honor God's laws and His WAYS... it shall continue to see more corruption and greater tribulation, among nations... everwhere.
Well, Henry... if only it were that simple. We will have to agree to disagree.
There are a whole host of ways to raise capital without involving commercial banks or SEC rules that apply to the issue Stock... Here are a few: Commercial Bonds, Debentures, Trade Credit, etc. These methods don't require a bank to access capital.
Dad was talking about this Government and outsiders from the EU...:)
Corporation control virtually EVERYTHING. They with the government are tyrannical and getting away with it.
There are all types of corporations... some are single-family operations and others are Global operations. Corporations are the backbone of a capitalist system.
Communist attack Banking and Corporations wherever they appear... be very careful how you deal with both... we need well regulated and morally operated corporations in a capitalist system.
The problem with capitalism is that it must be moderated by a moral code that limits its proclivity to abuse its commercial privileges in a democracy... to become a corrupt system... driven by greed and its monopolistic instincts... to control its markets for profit alone. Predatory capitalism is feudalism... we don't need to become a feudal state.
Moral Capitalism retains Godly rules for commerce at its core... Reaping only where it has sown, avoiding the use of an unjust scale or measure, adding value to the market place, while treating both capital and labor equitably... Whenever capitalism becomes out of balance by focusing solely on the maximization of profits, it no longer functions as the best means for commercial transactions... in a free society.
Feudalism is capitalism on steroids... it is predatory by nature and seeks to leverage position and power to obtain windfall profits, over following the Godly trait of adding value to the market place as the means to obtain earned profits. Feudal systems must be avoided if we are to have peace on earth and goodwill between all men.
