Gordon Gekko Is A Democrat

by Ann Coulter - March 25th, 2009 - Human Events

How did Republicans get saddled with Wall Street? Obama just got the biggest campaign haul from Wall Street in world history, and Republicans still can't shake the public perception that they are tied at the hip to Wall Street bankers who [in reality] hate them.

It's as if National Rifle Association members conspired with Republicans to bankrupt the country and everyone blamed the Democrats for being shills of the NRA.

The term crony capitalism was invented specifically to explain this phenomenon. Wall Street has long since abandoned capitalism and embraced a phony corporate socialism partnership with big government. Yet not only does the general public not notice. Stupid Republicans don't notice either. They still think that Wall Street believes in free enterprise.

They don't!

It is this illusion that Karl Rove and George W. Bush argue requires the Republican Party to adopt the big government crony capitalism model of modern socialism.

Wall Street is offended by the idea that small business exists. They support and only love huge corporations that have bought monopoly control of some market through mergers and acquisitions, with appropriate bribes to Wall Street for funding the process. Monopoly profits are much higher than the profits generated by the competitive free enterprise system.

Free enterprise is the system of individual freedom. Wall Street is the system of crony capitalism, a new variation of socialism based on the corruption of Democrat machines such as has long controlled Chicago and Illinois. We are finally seeing this machine try and take over America.

Ann is correct when she argues that Gordon Gekko, the fictional character from the 1987 film Wall Street by director Oliver Stone, is in the real world, a Democrat.

Ann Coulter is a great writer and fearless. Only a fearless Republican would point out that Wall Street is owned by Democrats. Most leaders of the Republican Party are still afraid that they can't get donations from business if they share that dirty little secret with rank and file Republicans. So it remains a secret. This is one of the issues over which more and more of Republican supporters see our leaders as gutless, but most do not.

Thank you Ann. We need more Republicans to point out the lie that Wall Street means capitalism, or has any relationship to capitalism. It has not for some time. We have got to separate Wall Street from the free enterprise of Small Business. They are incompatible concepts.

Just as the monopolies of the 19th Century had to be ended for our nation to prosper, the monopolies of the 21st Century must be ended for our nation to prosper. Unfortunately the new monopolies are government controlled and the socialists are in bed with the financial rulers of Wall Street. Unless and until the average libertarian and conservative who votes Republican "gets it", Democrats will control Wall Street and blame Republicans for Democrat corruption.
