Oh Yeah, What a Great Idea

Problem: The profligate spending and hyper-regulation of your progressive politicians has collided head-on with the biggest economic crisis since the 1930s.

Solution: stop that greedy corporation from "cheating" on its taxes.

Great idea, right? Right? So, let's do something politicians are genetically incapable of, and think past stage one:

Stage one: pass laws to force one of the richest corporations in the world to do something its leaders do not want to do.

Stage two: spend the next five years in litigation over the laws.

Stage three: Win.

Stage four: Said corporation, being flush with soon-to-be-taken-by-force cash, runs the numbers and figures out it will be far more expensive to stay and live under the point of a gun than it will be to move somewhere else.

Stage five: Corporation moves its entire operation to a friendlier state, cutting loose thousands of replaceable jobs and cratering an entire economy in the process.

Stage six: Nevada becomes even more successful.

But don't mind me. By all means, let's tax those greedy corporations until all their base belong to us!!!
