Karl Rove: The Case for Cronyism

Lately, there has been a lot disparaging comments made, mostly by those treasonous Democrats, on the “problem” of cronyism in America, especially with large corporations and their connections to this Republican administration.  To these critics I say, get a life, because cronyism is the mother’s milk of global capitalism, and it’s here to stay.

Yes, cronyism is a glorious thing.  Instead of large corporations being shackled with regulations and high taxes, cronyism allows our Republican campaign contributors to operate in a market free from accountability, much like in the good old days of the robber barons.Like J. P. Morgan and Andrew Carnegie, we must recognize that our captains of industry have a divine right to acquire riches not by the virtue of having produced or earned them, but because they own them.*

Remember, it is always sound business (and policy of this administration) to take any obtainable net gain, at any cost and at any risk to the rest of the community.*

That is why the President is so strongly behind the outsourcing jobs overseas, because lower wages mean higher profits for his country club friends.  He doesn’t care a hoot about the middle and working classes.   Why should he?  The closet he ever gets to an average American is the caddy, who carries his gold plated golf clubs.


That is why he put corporate lobbyists in his cabinet positions.

Do you think Gail Norton gives a rat’s ass about spotted owls?  Hell no. What matters to her are campaign contributions and the high paying consultant job she gets when she leaves her cabinet job.

Now that’s the spirit of crony capitalism!
