Monopolies Too Big To Fail

In the early twentieth century, America was being held hostage by large corporations, monopolies, and trusts. The Governor of New York at the time made it his business to fight back against those monopolies and trusts which had control over both political parties. These industries were so afraid of the Governor’s ability to fight against them, that they debated among themselves to find a way to neutralize the Governor. Their solution was to ask him to run for Vice-President.

America’s first Vice-President, John Adams, made it clear that the position of Vice-President was, “the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination conceived.”  So the idea of promoting this trouble making Governor to an insignificant office seemed like a good idea… until the President died. Then Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt had the means and the will to stop the monopolies, trusts, and corporate greed which he believer was a direct attack on American Democracy and on the American people. Teddy Roosevelt did not become President because he was popular, but rather because he was unpopular and yet today we consider him to be one of the greatest Presidents America has ever had.

Fast forward 100 years and that corporate greed has reasserted itself. The health insurance industry is said to be the sixth largest aspect of the American economy according to our current President who claimed on Wednesday that it was too big to overhaul “from scratch.” In other words, it is too big to scrap and too big to fail. Roosevelt understood that a business which is too big to fail is too big to exist. The Government should not be run by large corporations, but should instead be run by and for the People.

I don’t think we need to start “from scratch” as the President claimed, but I do think we need to dramatically overhaul this system. It shouldn’t be the 6th largest aspect of our economy. It shouldn’t have that much control over our government. These corporations shouldn’t be spending millions a day to buy off Congress and the Senate.

President Obama is no Teddy Roosevelt. He seems more concerned with trying to get the Republicans to like him than trying to do what is right for the American people. A fellow internet blogger, Anne Lamont put it best when she wrote last week, “Mr. President, stop trying to woo the Republicans. They are just not that into you, sir.”

The sad fact is that the Republican Party is playing politics with the American people. When America was attacked on 9/11, Democrats stopped playing politics and united behind our Republican President. They did not want our President to fail even when they disagreed with him. However, Republicans do want our current Democratic President to fail and they don’t care if the American people suffer because of it. They will not vote for any bill President Obama tries to push forward even one which gives them everything they want and nothing that progressive Democrats have been asking for. The President might as well stop playing paddy-cake with these people and start actually working to bust up the health care monopolies and trusts.

    I once heard somewhere that the republicans have interests in the oil industry and the democrats have interest in the pharmaceutical industry. I has become clear to me what needs to be done in this nation. We need to make it so political parties cannot accept donations from corporations and churches. The republicans and democrats won’t pass this bill. So we need to get a third party in power. Both the two main political parties need to be boycotted. There isn’t much support now for them but we need to do what we can to pull it off.

    I know we have the problem of the religious right and such dominating politics too but I now see that the root of that problem is due to the political system being corrupt in itself. The government doesn’t serve us, it serves corporations. The appealing to the religious right thing is the disguise they use to serve the corporations. While the democrats act like progressives but many are moderates in disguise.

    A revolution is too much to ask for but getting the main political parties out of power is what is needed by boycotting them voting for 3rd parties.

      The problem with that plan Scott is that the Republicans are crazy and getting crazier. Voting for a third party won’t really help the situation in any practical way. The best idea I have heard is to create a party within a party. We all should register as Democrats and vote for Progressive Democrats who stand against corporate money in the primaries. The Democratic Party will eventually slip between the Progressives and the “Blue Dogs.” This will in essence create a third party. Than is the plan I am pushing and I hope you and others will get on board.

        Well, that works too. Dividing the democratic party into two is more practical than a 3rd party. However, if the two main candidates are horrid next time around, I might still vote 3rd party anyways. Michigan always votes blue due to Detroit’s horrid state of affairs due to globalization so a lack of a blue vote from me in Michigan won’t really be that damaging but it could be used to empower a 3rd party. My hope was that by promoting the hell out of a third party thru the internet and such that in the long term, it would eventually bring a new party to power.

        But, we have 3+ years before the next presidential election so that is plenty of time to figure out the best stance, especially once we know who is running. As for congressmen, I’d have to see what they all stand for but I believe their election happens at the midpoint of Obama’s four years along with the governor of Michigan.
