Iím writing because I am deeply concerned that we are moving toward a government "of the big corporations and ruthless profit-seekers" rather than a government "of the people".

Government regulation is necessary to protect the people from an economic aristocracy. Please help us to move forward in the founding spirit of individual liberty, collective welfare, and "one person, one vote".

Thank you for your service and for considering my comment, Patrick Wooldridge
