He is the poster boy for everything the Republican Liberty Caucus and the Liberatarian Party believe in (minus and issue or two depending on which of the two you belong to) and people disrespect him all of the time. We are our own worst enemies anymore.

(Political correctness is all good for nobody.)
He is also the poster boy for criminalizing American soldiers in battle.
In that arena, O’bama has taken his cues from the Ron Paul.
Some flaws can not be glossed over.

I read that book. Good one. Basically, our government doesn’t like big corporations, and simply assumes that when they join with eachother or cut deals, it’s “in restraint of trade”. More often than not, the only ones hurt are weak competitors.
But who cares about them, anyway? Isn’t it about the consumers? No, it’s not. It’s about applying the wildly misguided assumptions of perfect competition theory, reality be damned!

(Government is essentially the negation of liberty.)
This was an interesting video - I’ve always been a bit torn about anti-trust laws myself. Thanks for posting.
On a side note, Armentano’s hair is awesome. Oh, the 80’s...
One of the biggest myths your average university grad has is that big government will teach those big corporations a lesson. The fact is, big corporations love big government. It's their smaller competitors and individuals that are destroyed by big government
