Response to Demeter (Reply #44)

47. I agree Demeter

and we, those of us who agree need to help make that come true. We need to get out in force, make sure he wins the primary, and then the general, and at the same time do everything we can to remove the majority of those in congress and replace them with legislators intelligent enough to do their own legislation. We have so many lobbyist writing legislation these days, groups such as ALEC and others, it makes me wonder why we even elect men and women to congress. We need to vet congressmen and women, and only elect those that do the will of the people, and not the will of the Oligarchs that have through the political activity of the Supreme Court bought and paid their way into our government.

Of the world's 100 largest economic entities, 51 are now corporations and 49 are countries. This is no accident and the implications of it are frightening:
