    of those who are pushing this.  

    They have more or less unlimted objectives, many of which go well beyond what we think of as 'regulations' and go deeper into the nature of our government.

    Think of the unprecedented scope and breadth of influence excercised by that manipulative and authoritarian elite during the GW Bush Administration.  

    Anything less than that must now chafe pretty heavily on those who would rather rule than be governed.

    If we think only in terms of individual retail regulations (environmental, product safety, health, financial services, etc) Obama has been moderate and business friendly for the most part.

    Even if you look at the wholesale regulations concerning the protections of the "market", his administration cannot be described as a trust-busting, eager to prosecute and just-looking-for-a-fight kind of operation.

    So what's so bad about Obama?

    He is not turning all the reigns of government over to these guys so they can profiteer from it and use it to obtain the level of tilted playing field that advantaged them so much for nearly a decade.  

    If removing Government would allow freedom, entrepreneurship and morality to flourish, why do we need stop lights?
