I think that's what I like about Sanders' brand of socialism. He's not in favor of the government controlling businesses, but of regulations that make them behave fairly and accountably. There's a big difference between socialism and democratic socialism, and Sanders has always defined himself as the latter.Businesses should be as free as possible from government regulation -- that is, if they can conduct their businesses honorably, ethically and morally, which they obviously can't, so at this point, regulate the hell out of them.
Why should American businesses be allowed to use offshore corporations to avoid paying fair taxes? How is it that GE, a multibillion dollar company, pays no income taxes? Why did the largest banks in the country, "too big to fail," get billions of dollars in bailouts when they themselves caused the problems? There's nothing fair about that, and I'm beyond ready for some fair.
My problem with Trump (well, ok, I've got nothing BUT problems with Trump, but this is one of the biggies) is the same as with Fiorina and Carson -- they have no government experience, and their mode of operation is as CEO, or in Carson's case, god. The qualities that make a good CEO (Fiorina wasn't even a good one) or a good neurosurgeon are not the ones that make good governors. They're like Perot -- they speak, and they expect all the frogs to ask "How high?" on the way up. Good government demands tact, and compromise, and attention to detail. Carson may attend to details, but other two don't. But I think all three would be disasters as president. The country doesn't need a boss, it needs a leader.
