Rampant Cronyism is one of the main reasons I am running for the US Senate. Cronyism is special applications of law for special people and another application for the rest of us.
For example, when someone defaults on their student loan. That is ok. It just follows them for the rest of their life. But when a special corporation faces default, like the American Insurance Group (AIG) defaults, they get an emergency bail-out at taxpayer expense.
For example, When MF Global mixed segregated accounts and then lost the money, nobody went to prison. The people whose accounts were violated lost their money. As recently as August 2014 Jon Corzine was organizing fund raisers for Hillary Clinton.
In short, our whole system of regulation, subsidies and bail-outs enable Cronyism and I am against all of it. Where we see campaign contributions, we can know there is Cronyism.
