she blinded me with science!

I don't precisely agree with what it says in the middle. I think it's more like, "Large corporations lobby the government for favorable regulations and reciprocate with huge campaign contributions." (Many of which end up in candidates' own pockets through unethical but technically legal campaign accounting tricks like Palin's infamous $150,000 shopping spree.)

Anyway, this illustrates why many on the libertarian left feel more camaraderie with the libertarian right than with the totalitarian left, despite the libertarian right's problematic positions on social issues. The rising fascism of the corporate-government complex is our largest and most immediate political problem.
