Dam Government Obstructs Economy

Subsidies, regulations, tax credits and write-offs, …  Why is it okay for the government to pick winners and losers in industry, business, finance, research, or agriculture?  To manipulate by loosening the purse strings?  Supplement entire industries in the name of the greater good?  Even with the best of intentions, it is not the role of government to be a catalyst in the marketplace.  For far too long we have let Washington redirect true economic progress and we are now on a collision course with reality.  Only the free-market can correct the route we are on.  The momentum of growth will take the path of least resistance.  We should not be surprised at the cesspool on Wall St.  We have allowed the invasion to meddle and fester.  If the economy is stagnant, it is because government is in the way.
