Crony Capitalism is an outsourcing of American jobs plus walmartization of the whole country

By Ilya Galak

“Crony Capitalism is an outsourcing of American jobs plus walmartization of the whole country” – I.G.

Many people around the world think that USA is a capitalist society with a free market. Nothing can be more far from the truth. We Americans live in a crony capitalist society.


Crony Capitalism.  Just what is it and why is it so bad? Crony Capitalists are those who seek to win in the market place, not by honest competition, but rather through government favoritism in the forms of advantageous laws, tax regulations, and other such methods. This is the heart of corruption and special interest groups as we know them today. Some among them may not realize it yet, but average people, both Conservative and Liberal are equally against crony capitalism, but they just blame each other for its existence.

Liberals blame conservatives because the free market creates rich people and they can buy politicians off. So liberals propose more regulations to try and limit said rich people’s power. Conservatives blame Liberals for creating Big Government, which won’t allow businesses to survive and grow without strong political connections.

So what can be done in order to fix the system? How can we make politicians accountable to the people, not the special interest groups? How can we make the government work for us, not us work for the Government?

This is a MUST WATCH video that perfectly describes the corruption problem

Dylan Ratigan:
We owe $70 trillion dollars.

I understand that. But you can’t sit here and say … okay…

Dylan Ratigan:
Walk out a $4 trillion solution, which is basically just a way for the Democrats to avoid dealing this until 2017.

I’m not here about plans to deal with this for 2017. I’m saying we have a real problem and I’m tired of Republicans and Democrats – Republicans who want to burn the place to the ground and Democrats, all due respect, who want to offer a plan that gets it through the end of their second term of their presidency and then screws me and my kids when it’s over.

Ok, but there’s a way … ok…

Dylan Ratigan:
Until we do that we have to deal with the extraction that is at foot, it is the reason the financial markets are behaving, they’re behaving, and it is a mathematical fact.

This is not some opinion. This is a mathematic fact. Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America. Democrats aren’t doing it. Republicans are not doing it and entire integrated system, financial systems, trading system, taxing system, that was created by both parties over a period two decades, is at work on our entire country right now and we’re sitting here arguing about whether we should do the $4 trillion plan that kicks the can down the road for the president to 2017 or burn the place to the ground.

Both of which are reckless, irresponsible and stupid, and the fact of the matter is, until we actually — I’m sorry to lose my temper, but I’ll tell you what, I’ve been coming on TV for three years doing this, and the fact of the matter is, that there’s a refusal on both the Democratic and the Republican side of the aisle to acknowledge the mathematical problem, which is that the United States of America is being extracted.

It’s being extracted through banking. It’s being extracted through trade and it’s being extracted through taxation and there’s not a single politician that has stepped forward, Susan, to deal with this.

Susan Del Percio – Republican Strategist:
There’s only one right now. The leader of the free world, whether you like it or not, The President of the United States is arguably one of the most powerful individuals we have out there and he’s our president.

Karen Finney:
But Susan what you’re saying is exactly the point that Dylan is making. It’s not about one guy. It’s about all of them together.

Susan Del Percio – Republican Strategist:
No. I actually disagree. I think Dylan —

Dylan Ratigan:
I agree with her.

Karen Finney:
What is one guy…

It is about one guy.

Karen Finney:
What would you like him to do?

Dylan Ratigan:
I would like him to go to the people of United States of America and say, people of the United States of America, your Congress is bought. Your Congress is incapable of making legislation on health care, banking, trade or taxes, because if they do it they will lose their political funding, and they won’t do it, but I’m the President of the United States, and I won’t have a country that is run by a bought Congress.

So I’m not going to won’t work with a bought Congress and try to be Mr. Big Guy, I’m a bought Congress. I’m going to abandon the bought Congress, like Teddy Roosevelt did and go to people of the United States and say; you’ve got to bought Congress.

And until we get rid of the bought Congress, with this Jimmy Williams’ constant point. Just get the money out of politics, and until the President says that’s the problem and says he’s going to fix it, there is no policy that I can possibly see no matter how brilliant your ideas or my idea or her idea or your idea at home – is that idea will not happen as long as there’s a capacity to basically fire a politician who disagrees with me by taking funding away from him. Is that a fair assessment?

Jimmy Williams:
Money and politics is the root of all political evil. It is corruption at its worse. And until we step up and kick that out of the park, it’s going to be the same system all –

Dylan Ratigan:
And only the President can do that.

We’re going to keep you —

No, no the Congress has to do it, too.

When and how? When and how?

Dylan Ratigan:
But I’ll tell you what? How bad does it have to get? How much money has to be extracted? How many things have to be heard?

Karen Finney:
… brass tax, physically, what do you do?

Dylan Byers:
You go and give a speech.

Karen Finney:
Right now?

Dylan Ratigan:
Yeah. Right now.

Karen Finney:
Right now?

Dylan Ratigan:
You say – you say –

Susan Del Percio:
Then what happens tomorrow?

Dylan Ratigan:
Tomorrow what happens is you begin the process of actually investing in solving the problem.

Karen Finney:

Dylan Ratigan:
How? I create an infrastructure bank with 2% blending immediately. There’s — once I explain to people the problem, once I explain to you – you have cancer, once you understand how screwed up your trade, tax and banking policies are, believe me, you will have no issue when I incorporate an infrastructure bank that I fund with repatriated offshore money that I bring in and then I use to create 2% direct lending to every business in America, because when you realize that the banking system is fully corrupt and defrauding us, and I come out and say that, which is what I want my President to do, that that is — at that exact moment I say, you know what? We’ve got a screwed up situation here, people.

You all know it and now what I’m going to admit it. And as a result, not only have I admitted it – but we’ll begin the process of solving it like grown-up, they did it after World War II, they did it after the Civil War, they did it in Latin America with the Brady Bonds. We are not seeing it happen now – panel stays – a little more emotional than I anticipated yet again it worked this afternoon but what am I going to do…
