The General likes to to keep track of the American crony capitalist class. Need we more evidence that the Republican Party is its political body?
Republican state attorneys general in at least six states telephoned corporations or trade groups subject to lawsuits or regulations by their state governments to solicit hundreds of thousands of dollars in political contributions, according to internal fundraising documents obtained by The Washington Post.
The crony capital claim is not a one-way street by any means. Sometimes crony capital manipulates the state, sometimes the state manipulates crony capital. It's a symbiotic relationship destined to end in sorrow. Just ask Indonesia.
