We need only look to Wall Street and a Supreme Court Decision that granted citizenship (humanity) to entities that cannot be jailed for their crimes regardless of how many are harmed or how few are enriched at the expense of those harmed
not true. corporations can certainly be taken to court and guilty indivisibles can certainly be jailed. may i suggest that if the government were not regulating the crap out of business, then business might not feel the need to be involved in politics? after all, what would be the point if government had no involvement in business. it wouldn't matter to them who won or lost. since that is not the case, can you blame them for wanting to get into it?
How about PAC's and those Super PACs? How do those entities level the playing for average citizens? Can't wait to see the answer to this
another example of the government trying to "fix" things.
Even in your explanation you omitted the obvious comparison kathyP; Are we to assume you believe that 'only' government (us) is in charge and therefore solely responsible, and that's why so many want to replace it?
i'm not sure exactly what you are asking? you already know what i want. no, i will not get it, but hopefully i will get a little closer to it. if not, i'll keep working.
So, that's Government (Hitler), Industry (corporations) and Banks, all sleeping together, just like America, past and present c-2012. Very similar circumstances indeed, and for all to see.
exactly my point. add to that, we have an executive grabbing unprecedented power for his office. only a few time have we had something similar. Wilson would have been one, and FDR another. with others, you have had one or the other, but not both the massive entanglement with private industry and the power grab.
Americans are no where near 'uncomfortable' enough to do anything substantial or meaningful about any of this ..............yet.
and the will not. there is a large portion of the population that doesn't care as long as they get their stuff. this is one of the reasons i advocate a flat tax that everyone, no matter income, pays. you have a large portion of the population that is politically uninvolved. most don't vote. many who do, vote according the the latest AARP flier, or the last commercial they saw. then we have the emotional voters who vote for things like hope and things like change, and have no clue about the person.
so yeah, on this we agree. we may not agree on how we got here or how to get out, but we agree on where we are....more or less :-)
