Deregulation of various industries is a concept loudly heralded by Republicans and Conservatives in general as a means to "promote competition" and "stimulate the economy".

Anyone with half a brain can quickly figure out that they're more or less looking for a friendlier way of saying they'd like to make it easier to act outside the law, let unsafe and under-tested products roll off assembly lines on the cheap, and bring back the days before the Clayton Antitrust Act; a glorious time period in which the grand-daddies of the current crop of Republicans made their money and earned their clout.
-Every Republican politician or businessman has uttered these words at least one time in his career.
