25. even with good intentions of enforcing real competition, the huge players in any market have a lot

power and can force out small competitors long before Government wathdogs can get around to doing anything about it. NOt because they are incompetent. It just takes so long to build a case and go to court with it. Long before that can happen the small fries are crushed or bought out.

GOPers propaganda talks a lot about entrepreneurship, but with the large corporations it's very hard for a small operator to really succeed big with a good idea. If he has a good idea he will be bought out ( the corporation will tell him: "Well, maybe you don't think were offering enough for your idea/product, but if you don't accept it, we have engineers who can come up with a knock off of your product and before you can bring a case to court you will have been put out of business a decade earlier.

Freee market, HA!

Good post!
