Leftism condones (the) evil(s of big government)

Lefties hate business and especially big corporations. I give the latter no pass if they do wrong or violate reasonable regulations. But has Apple or Microsoft ever incarcerated anyone, or put anyone to death, or started a shooting war, or forced anyone to buy anything or to violate his conscience as the Obama administration is doing via its signature abomination, Obamacare?

On the other hand, did the government provide me with the iPad Air I just bought? You didn’t build that, Obama! Not you, not your government, not any government. High tech does not come from politicians or lawyers, two classes that are nearly the same — yet another problem to be addressed in due course.

Be intellectually honest, you lefties. Don’t turn a blind eye to the depredations of Big Government while excoriating (sometimes legitimately) those of Big Business.
