"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Of course Obuttocks isn't waging war on "big business" per se.  He, and all progs/libs, only wage war on those big businesses that refuse to be coopted and that refuse the seductive quid pro quos dangled before them by progs/libs in gov't.  Otherwise, progs/libs absolutely love big business when it partners with big government because that partnership makes it much, much easier for progs/libs to realize their dreams of imposing their will on everyone else.  And that, in a nutshell, is fascism.  Why do I make that claim?  Because that - the formation of incestuous relationships between big government and big business - is a fundamental tenet of fascist political philosophy and was one of the primary means by which both the Nazis and the Italian National Fascist Party acquired dictatorial power and control in pre-WWII Germany and Italy, respectively.
