It's not. Baja asked if the people would just roll over. Dr. Brownstain brought up the fact that a certain percentage of people through their desire for money, who will continue to allow the government to behave as is. I am simply agreeing with him, but from the other side.

Just as a certain percentage of people are okay with living off the government, a certain percentage of people are okay with big business being bed partners with government. The Citizens United decision makes it all that much worse.
