    Let's end cleptocracy. The food you eat, the education your kids receive, the gas, electricity, water & phone bills you pay, they all are a in the hands of the fat transnational corporations and very few national holdings, squeezing you out -not out of any "creativity" or merit- but out of sheer avarice, greed, and knowledge they have you by your balls. You can't live without electricity or water or food or some health care. So the republican, pro-free market concepts you juggle in your post are from the 1960's, not from 2012. The world has suffered both communist state regulation and late capitalist de-regulation which leads to cleptocracy, corruption and infinite greed overrunning every other value. They both end up in slavery of 99% of the people. And the latter is global. It's everywhere. People are fed up of it from Madrid to Telv Aviv, from México to New York, from Paris to London.
