The problem is when government writes "regulations" which are actually favorable to the big corporations and detrimental to smaller companies. Imagine if FM and BEGI wrote, then lobbied their Congressworms for the "Turbo Safety Act" which makes it illegal to sell or install a turbo system that hasn't undergone $20,000 worth of "safety testing". That ain't free market capitalism, that's Corporatism. But that's exactly what Moore is railing against, and he mistakenly believes more government control over everything is the solution. Free market capitalism is about competition on a level playing field.

dont give them any ideas...

In California, we've always taken that for granted. It's called the ARB.
