    You will not be able to make governments stop giving money to corps.

    They'll say the same stuff they say now, people will buy it.

    •  Then what's the point of having taxes? (0+ / 0-)

      What are you arguing for?  You're saying that gov't is hopelessly corrupt.  Okay, let's run with that and I'll break it down for you.

      With a tax, all corporations are taxed.  Government takes the revenue and then the politicians dole that money out to those with the best lobbyists or those that give the politicians the most kick backs.

      Without a tax, government takes in less revenue, and doesn't have money to give away.

      If it's hopeless, then you should be advocating to make government as small as possible, to limit the damage it can do.

      But I think you're wrong.  Welfare, corporate or otherwise, it highly unpopular.  No one likes giving their hard earned money away, and any corporate welfare programs will have giant bulls eyes painted on them.  Ending corporate welfare will not be the challenge you think it is.
