You are absolutely right. Cronyism is on both sides of the isle. But your appeal to, and inference of, a kinder, gentler govt. is the kind of utopian wishful thinking that has led our nation to its soft tyranny. I agree, no corporate bailouts and no corporate socialism, from either side of the isle. Progressive-Liberals don't want to be bothered with the rule of law, i.e. The U.S. Constitution, and you voted in a continuation of this. Point your finger and count the number of fingers pointing back at you.
