    Money Trail

    I don`t think corporations control the government as much as you think, it`s the amount of money they can and are willing to spend to get what they want, So untill that is controlled. It does appear that corporations control the government.

    The Government's Role Is To Support Corporate Growth

    At least part of it. The free enterprise system is what drives America and Americans. Obviously there's a resistance in converting US to a socialist state. If the government controls corporate interests, we get an awkward situation like the one in China.
