"If it's not accepted that big government, fiat money, ignoring liberty, central economic planning, welfarism, and warfarism caused our crisis, we can expect a continuous and dangerous march toward corporatism and even fascism with even more loss of our liberties," said Paul, an obstetrician-gynecologist by training.

In this era of multinational corporations, particularly including banks, that have net incomes larger than some first-world countries, do we really need "government so small it can be drowned in a bathtub"?

Do we really want people who believe that there is no such thing as a 'market failure' running all of our markets?

I share his concern about "corporatism and even fascism with even more loss of our liberties"
