Is it true that the interventionist policies promoted by liberals favor the wealthy and powerful?


It seems that the government interventions promoted by liberals assure a competitive advantage for government favored groups. Many regulations, subsidies and laws have the affect of creating a culture of corruption, which is the very thing they were intended to prevent. These policies protect established firms from competition while preventing smaller challedgers from succeeding.

    To me, conservative is a far cry to what the GOP has become and in my opinion liberal describes the vast majority of democrats. But true conservatives don't support state capitalism whereas the liberals seem to.

    What do you make of Obamacare? Why did large and established insurance and pharmaceutical companies favor Obamacare, when the smaller companies did not?

    This is not about finger pointing or assigning blame. Those old biased attitudes do nothing but encourage civil unrest. It is time for us to unite, not further the divide. There is blame enough to go around for everyone so nix the attitude.

    General Electric is a good example of a company that liberals favored at the expense of smaller competitors. Much of the New Deal legislation in the 30’s was actually drawn up by executives from GE.
