Big Evil Corporation!

Being a bear of little brain, there are many things I don't understand. It's been pointed out to me quite a few times that my intellect is dull because my beliefs don't match those of the folks that see me that way. Most of them went to college, and are therefore smart. All I have is my powers of observation.
These people tell me they want the Government to have more regulatory power because corporations and the quest for profit is inherently evil.
Here's what I don't understand. All the Federal Government is, is the biggest corporation of all. You can buy stock in the form of treasury bills and bonds. The President and CEO is selected indirectly by the shareholders. More corruption than Enron, more poorly run than General Motors, along with a forced monopoly on all it provides.
Why are the smaller corporations vilified for trying to take your money, but the biggest corporation of all is trusted with more and more of your money and providing your needs?

Ah, yes, and traditionally this has been the logic behind the democratic party; unfortunately, now it the mantra of both parties. Furthermore, the notion that this biggest corporation will redefine/eliminate the second and third largest corporations (insurance and drug) via healthcare reform is hard to fathom. People rarely vote themselves out of a job - or unimaginable wealth.
