Isn't the point of monopoly laws to keep companies/corporations from becoming too big to fail?

    No, they were instated by Theodore Roosevelt to prevent Monopolies or companies from being too big. Stimulus and Bailouts prevent free market principles.

    it implies monopoly, but having a monopoly does not imply being too big to fail. A Republican will think that is contradictory, but only because they don't understand logic. Certain essential goods and service that are critical to our infrastructure (banks, oil, etc) cannot be allowed to get to big too fail, whereas non-essential goods and services are free to fluctuate with market conditions without causing harm to the overall economy.

    no

    it is to keep them from getting so big and powerful that no one else can enter the market.

    there is no such thing as too big to fail....that is a fallacy...The USSR was far bigger than GM...and it failed.
