The Business of Government ...

... is not business.

The business of government is to secure our inherent rights; the purpose of a corporation is to make a profit. Securing rights is not profitable, therefore, a government infested with businessmen has, and will, only lead to an erosion of the security of our rights in the name of profit for the few. This has been proven every time a President has enacted "pro-business" deregulation and union busting; the policies failed with Harding, Reagan, and Bush the Younger, each time causing a bubble followed by a crash. The empirical evidence is obvious but, as anybody who pays attention to Republicans can tell you, empirical evidence doesn't matter to Republicans; all that matters is blind faith.
