Mitt Romney, Big-Government Man

Perfect is the enemy of the good. Romney may or may not believe his statements that endorse bigger government, but I am sure that any candidate coming forth with true libertarian ideas will not win. Change will not happen that quickly. There are a good number of people who think like Stossel, but choosing a strategy where you lack a majority means the other side wins and implements its desires. This is a loser over the long term when education creates people who depend on government for subsistence. A longer term plan and better thinking is needed to bring about the change you want Stossel.

Well, to start almost all your basic premises are false. Romney is not running to be CEO. I just checked his website again. Yep...limited government. The problem with your thought process is that you want Obama to run the economy. That's why it is not working. If you examine capitalism versus the economic system you ask for, you might notice that within the space of two to three generations, more people worldwide have been pulled out of poverty than at any other time. Might want to try it again!

Before commenting, simple facts like unemployment at 8.3%, should cause you to be flagged and discarded when making inane comments like 50% of Americans being without work. If you are going to represent a liberal or progressive viewpoint, get mor informed, or please be quiet.

Your argument would be greatly aided by a definition of crony capitalism, and the fact that much of the issue and concern over capitalism results from our lack of understanding the difference between crony capitalism and capitalism in general. Your article hints at the effects of government as it relates to this issue, but the argument could be made more pithily and succinctly.
