Republicans support SMALL government and BIG business. Democrats support SMALL business and BIG government to regulate BIG business and ensure the survival of SMALL business. Without the regulation of BIG business by BIG government, SMALL businesses are subject to the predatory practices of BIG business, witness Standard Oil in the past and WalMart in the present. Mom and pop small businesses on Main Street are fast disappearing in America thanks to big-box stores and the outsourcing and off-shoring of American jobs. Many Americans cannot afford to purchase American goods and services because wages have not kept pace with American productivity. The average wage in America should be twice what it is now and it would be if not all the benefits of gains in productivity had not gone to the 1%.
