    Our federal govt is bought and paid for by our big corporations; sometimes the purchase goes through proxies  (501's pacs etc) but, it is the same. Corporations own our govt!!

    I agree with you there.  What we need is the popular opinion party - put all issues up to vote on your web site, and always go with the majority of your constituents.  It's the only way to defeat special interest.

    In some cases, GE and Goldman Sachs come to mind. Basically though, they're just playing the "If we play along they'll take us last" game.

    Some like to think that some established politicians are "for the poor or little people" they are the biggest fools of all.

    It's only getting worse since money was directly equated with speech.




    That's true!

    aren't you the one who just posted the neoliberal article about the need to give more power to the private sector and reduce spending by the public sector? you do realize that these big corporations represent the private sector right?

    These big corporations are not the private sector, you have it wrong.

    They are crony capitalists, connected at the hip to Government..Instead of being successful by making better products and services and competing in a free marketplace, they rig the game. They partner with Government bureaucrats and regulations, which destroy competition and free enterprise. Liberals support Big Government, which enables Big Corporations.

    Government isnt the solution, it is the problem.

    I do believe in the free market and private sector jobs opposed to just bigger govt.

    Agreed this is a problem.

    The corps have too much influence on the govt.

    Glad we cleared that up....

    Blanket statements are fun!

    Conservatives support Big Corps which enable Big Govt.

    Here's the problem I have:

    Corporations are in business to make money and grow business. They look to government to help and are willing to pay for that help; most shareholders/employees would support the corporation spending money to help grow the business even if it means just contributing to get a second look, delay regulation, delay a tax law, etc.

    We elect OUR REPRESENTATIVES to protect our interests and be honest and ethical NOT to sell out to corporations!

    Yeah, but the corporations elect them, too.  They're people, y'know, and their money equals free speech, as per the SCotUS.

    It's the modern fiefdom.  Get used to it, 'cause it ain't goin' nowhere....
