Ford received a government backed loan, they didn't receive a bailout. Additionally, the federal government didn't allowed GM and Chrysler to avoid the normal bankrupcy process. This violated one of the most important first principles of our Constitution and our Founding Fathers. We are a nation of laws, not men, and the Federal Government is supposed to be there to protect all citizens from others who would infringe upon their rights. In this case the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT at the direction of our President, was the agent of the violation of our laws. THAT IS WHAT WAS WRONG ABOUT THE BAILOUTS!
