Big business has power, & government has ....what?

The power government possesses is the power to take all of your wealth and possessions, your freedom, your life. It has the power of physical force. True, Wall Street (and "big business") can use money to influence Congress through campaign contributions and lobbying. But it's perverse to equate that power, which is ultimately the power to persuade, with the power to destroy. And it's sheer lunacy to claim that the one with the power to destroy is a passive victim.
