equal under the law

Dana Blankenhorn:

Regulation is not anti-business. Regulation is crime prevention.

A properly-regulated market does not stifle innovation. It is not socialism.

Imagine Las Vegas without casino regulation. That’s today’s Wall Street.

That’s the reality of our time. We are ruled by a new criminal class, one surrounded by lawyers, flacks, and accountants, who not only believe they have a right to rape our land, kill our people and destroy our Constitution, but consider it a┬ápositive economic boon, necessary for economic growth.

There is nothing new here. If Mexico’s government can be mastered by drug dealers, then it’s the drug dealers who rule Mexico. If America’s government can be mastered by Wall Street or big business, then we are ruled by Wall Street and big business.
