LOL. :roll: Another troll who has no idea what Marxism, Socialism, Communism or Facism is.
Psstt... "Defense" budget? Wars? Huge tax breaks on the super rich?
You don't have a government anymore. You have two parties who serve big MULTINATIONAL corporations. If it makes sense for their business to go oversea and leave crap behind, they will do it in a heartbeat.
Nothing patriotic about it, just business as usual.
Let's see an example:
1. Company A closes shop in the states, moves to China for main manufacturing (cheap labor costs, less environmental laws, etc).
2. Sad workers join tea baggers, who ask for tax breaks for said companies, no healthcare, education cuts, etc.
3. Company A gets rewarded by a nice tax break.
What do you think of laid off workers ? Are they also stupid and lazy because they have no jobs anymore ?
On the backs of whom do you think Asia is rising ?
I don't like a nanny state nor big centralized governments. But I think it is pure folly to trust big corporations instead.
