In reality, Republican leadership is quite comfortable with monopolistic or oligopolistic control of the market as evidenced by GOP legislation which allowed a handful of owners to dominate cable media which before was much more diversified.
And no, minimal government oversight is not enough. There are too many areas in need of policing. The Republican approach is to remove as many regulatory "cops" as possible, which is exactly what the Wall Street wolves want.
Democrats cater to the corporations like a farmer caters to his fattening cows. Until he takes them to slaughter.

The Democratic Governors Association vacuumed up $11.6 million in contributions -- mostly from corporations and unions -- during the second half of 2009. For the year, DGA raised $23.1 million, a record.

The contributors included hefty checks from nearly every top lobbying firm in Washington and from such multi-national giants as Exxon Mobil which pitched in $50,000.

...Democrats catering to corporations "to some extent" is an understatement.

As far as the vote to ban gay marriage in California:

ABC News - "Whites voted very narrowly against the ban, 51-49 percent. Asian-Americans voted the same. Hispanics voted for it by 53-47 percent. Blacks voted for it, overwhelmingly, 70-30. Blacks can be said to have put it over the top. Hypothetically, had no blacks voted, we compute a vote of 50-50," according to an analysis by ABC News Polling Director.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2008/11/...

This is the irony on the part of Democrats. They continually blame Republicans for not supporting gay marriage when it's mostly blacks and Hispanics - who are mostly Democrats.

Well ...

Appears Attorney General Eric Holder was TKO'D by Senator
"Rand Paul" .. The White House conceded and answered his question.

So, I'd say he's more like The Slugger, George Foreman.
Paul just kept on Slugging Away to obtain that TKO Victory!

“Mr. President,” the petition begins.”We the people request that you respond to Senator Rand Paul and the citizens of America on the issue of drone strikes on US soil with the potential to kill US citizens without a trial.… We request that you respect our freedoms and our rights as US citizens.”

“Mr. President, as our elected leader, you are accountable to the people and so we ask that you address this important issue”, it adds, signing off ”respectfully” under the name “A Citizen of the United States of America.”

http://dailycaller.com/2013/03/07/dramatic-ra...

Now, We The People need to sign and submit a petition to get an answer, The Truth, about the Benghazi debacle! Stop The LIES!

Liberals came up with the similarity. Almost admired him for it.

ABC News - "Mr. Smith would be proud. That’s how most Americans probably view a filibuster: Jimmy Stewart as Mr. Smith reading aloud for hours and hours in pursuit of righting some wrong."

YOU'RE WRONG!!!! After 13 Hours, The White House capitulated and Eric Holder wrote A Letter stating:

"It WOULD BE Un-Constitutional for Obama to use drones against Americans on American Soil" ... Go Read It!

HERE ~ WATCH ~ LISTEN:

"Eric Holder Admits Killing Americans With Drones on U.S. Soil is Unconstitutional": After much stuttering ... Uh, Uh, Uh



Published on Mar 6, 2013

3/6/13 - Eric Holder informed Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) in writing that the White House would be within its legal authority to execute an American citizen via drone on U.S. soil if that person was determined to pose a threat to national security.
On Wednesday, testifying before a Senate panel, Holder was prodded repeatedly about this assertion by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
Holder eventually admitted that it would not be constitutional to execute an American citizen without due process.

Do you liberals LIE or are you just UNINFORMED!? HOT-DAMN!!

Shiny, some advice.

When you're a clueless *bastard* who hasn't studied the subject, maybe you should shut your yap and try to rein in your arrogance just a little.

Kennedy inherited Vietnam from Eisenhower.

He engaged in a limited risk gamble, but eventually concluded the majority of Vietnamese did not welcome our presence.

At the time of Kennedy's death, less than two hundred servicemen had died in there. There were no regular Marine or Army combat batallions deployed. There was some combat, but nothing to what would later develop. Most of the approxiamtely 15,000 troops were support personnel.

If you read the transcipts of Joint Cheifs of Staff, Honolulu Conference of October 2, 1963, the language makes clear Kennedy wanted a pull-out of all U.S. personnel by the end of 1965.

Had he lived, there would have been no Gulf of Tonkin and no major war in Vietnam.

What launched the big war was the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. And I have already provided evidence that CIA black operations provoked it.

Now run along, little boy, and let the adults debate the issues.

PS

In 1954, when the U.S. sent its first CIA units into Vietnam, the current DCI, Allen Dulles, was a Republican.

The Honorable Rand Paul

Dear Senator Paul:
It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: "Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?" The answer to that question is NO.

Congress authorized the war against al Qaeda and its allies. While many details of the drone strikes remain secret, it can hardly be argued that Congress isn’t aware of the program’s existence or the administration’s -general legal justification for it; Attorney General Eric Holder spelled out much the same case for the program last March in a speech at Northwestern University. Nor is it possible for the administration to carry out the--program without congressional authorizations, either by the intelligence or the armed services committees. And as the -confirmation hearings of CIA director nominee John Brennan demonstrate, Congress has always had the ability to dig deeper if it chooses to use its oversight powers. What the critics don’t want to admit is that poll after poll indicates that the American public supports the drone program, and members of Congress, within reason, will reflect that support.

Nor is it the case that the courts have been ignored. It is impossible to read the white paper, with its citations of court decisions and its criteria for “balancing” state and individual interests based on court decisions, and not conclude that the paper was produced in the shadow of the federal court’s newfound, post-9/11 willingness to review executive branch counterterrorism policies. Shamsi also conveniently ignores the fact that when the ACLU sued the U.S. government over placing Anwar al-Awlaki (the American citizen and radical imam who planned the failed “underwear bomber” attack over Detroit in 2009 and was subsequently killed by a drone strike) on a “kill list,” the federal court dismissed the suit. According to the court, these were policies and decisions the Constitution had left in the hands of the political branches, those “best positioned and most politically accountable for making them.” In short, those opposed to the drone program got their day in court; they just don’t like what the court decided.

Drones and strange bedfellows: Why neocons are showing Obama some love

And why liberals are starting to turn a cold shoulder. As John Brennan heads into his confirmation hearing, it's apparently opposite day in Washington

But there's a reason Congress hasn't made much of a stink about the issue over the past four years. "Put simply: Americans love drones." A series of polls shows that Americans' support for drone strikes "is not only wide but also bipartisan," and if conservatives are more forgiving of Obama now, perhaps it's because more Republicans than Democrats approve of the strikes.
