Crony Capitalism For Dummies

There’s been a lot of snark on the Left side of the web about the “irony” of holding the RNC in a publicly financed stadium (a fact dutifully ignored by Your Liberal Media).  Hah hah!  Look at the hypocrites as they chant “we built this!” on the taxpayer’s dime.  Don’t laugh; it’s not funny.  It’s the modern Republican idea of “capitalism,” namely that the government exists to service corporations and billionaires, whether its paying for expensive sports venues or ladling out government contracts.  All that horseshit about “rugged individualism”?  That’s for “you people”.  “Socialism” is for our neo-Ayn Randian “job creator” overlords; “capitalism” is for the “parasites,” meaning the people who work for a living.
