Why Don’t Corporations Support Libertarianism?

We’ve heard all too often that libertarianism would lead to corporate rule, corporate abuses, and other supposed evils of an unregulated free market. If this is indeed the case, why don’t corporations support candidates with libertarian principles?

    Corporations don’t want liberty because they pay off the people with the most guns (government) to enact laws (threats of violence) on its behalf. Regulations are barriers to entry for other people to compete with them. They want government to enact regulations which make competition more difficult.

    Corporations don’t support Libertarian minded candidates because they can’t control them. They truly do not want a Free market society because they don’t want competition. They want to control the government to pass what they want. Wall-street hates Ron Paul because they would lose there control over government. Also the Federal Reserve doesn’t like Ron Paul because he threatens there very existence. The last President that wanted to End the Federal Reserve was President John F. Kennedy, and we all know what happen to him. He was gunned down in the streets of Dallas. His brother wanted to continue the pursuit of ending the Fed. Then Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed before he could even get into office. He would have won for sure.

  3. Because, to borrow the words of David Henderson, there are economies of scale in compliance with the state.

    1. No government CONTRACTS or SUBSIDIES or BAILOUTS (huge source of direct and indirect income for US companies)
    2. No directing military to seize resources in foreign nations
    3. No directing of monetary policy to manipulate markets
    4. No directing of government agencies to make it difficult or illegal for alternative and new companies to compete (FDA, USDA, etc.)

    A libertarian government would foster genuine competition, which would be to the detriment of many of the large corporations today.

  5. What comes to your mind when you think about a satisfying.

    Planning to turn Independence Day into a four-day weekend.
    You won’t need a mountain climbing harness because we are not talking about anything but hiking up mountains, not technical climbing.
