Mitt Romney has done well for himself in early Republican Primary contests this year, but what he doesn't want you to know is that if Wall Street had a primary, Mitt Romney would win that too. His top three contributors this election cycle are Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse Group, and Morgan Stanley. In addition to these three, four more of Mitt Romney's top ten contributors are also "too-big-to-fail" banks and giant international financial corporations, including: HIG capital at #4, Barclays at #5, Bank of America at #7, and JPMorgan Chase & Co at #10.
That's who wants Mitt Romney to be the Republican Party's nominee: big banks that profit from lobbyist-written legislation and public sector bailouts at the taxpayer's expense, as well as the big law firms who advise, consult, and litigate on their behalf. This isn't capitalism and Mitt Romney knows it. Capitalism is what happens when companies innovate, work hard, and create products and services that consumers value and willingly pay money for. Every cent of profit from that kind of activity is well-earned and belongs to the companies that create it.
But any TARP-opposing Tea Party protester could tell you that Wall Street doesn't produce its profits-- it lobbies for them. It doesn't create wealth-- it steals it from taxpayers. It doesn't engage in capitalism-- it engages in public sector wealth redistribution, straight from your wallet to Wall Street's bottom line.
The establishment ruling class can't allow anyone to challenge their rule, which is why they (rightly) perceive Ron Paul as a threat. Mitt for Brains and Obomba pose no such danger to their special privileges, so the Bankster/Wall Street elite are happy to present you with that "choice" this November.
