9. Remember FDR started regulating businesses for the main fact that business men
would create monopolies. Reagan came along, deregulated everything and what are we seeing? Monopolies. Wonder what made brain dead americans forget what happens when you deregulate business? Oh yeah thats right, the sheeple thought the rich being able to get richer would mean a golden trickle down on them effect. Well reality is that the golden trickle went up instead of down and all the sheeple and the rest of us are getting is a brown shower.
