Buying politicians who can grant you a legal monopoly

If the facts of this Detroit Free Press article are true, Matty Moroun is far from the kind of entrepreneur I admire. Rather, he is like James Taggart from "Atlas Shrugged": a leech who uses government power in his favor, and a bully who buys lobbyists to continue working in his favor.

Evil = a state using public money to build a bridge
Evil = a private individual buying off politicians to vote against a bridge, when that new bridge would remove his monopoly over US-Canada border traffic
