Slaves to Corporate America


It’s pretty pathetic isn’t it?
Gone are the days of integrity and principle (Karl Rove) win at all and any cost is the fashion of the times, and what is now considered success is the ability to get away with as much as you can.

This President in particular is good at winning the event (the Presidential race) but horrible at managing what he eventually wins (Texas Rangers). He’s a short sighted sprinter who eyes the finish line of the race but not what he is going to do once he gets there (Iraq).

The press has to be the fourth wing of the government especially in these times. The Republicans to me act as “slaves” to corporate America. They are so fearful for their cushy jobs as our representatives that they give the special interest whatever they want in order to keep their own political careers (jobs) afloat.

What’s good for the Country is not necessarily what is good for Exxon/Mobil or Halliburton. It’s a damn shame, and they are beneath contempt forgetting our struggle for independence, and the covenants of the Constitution, The Bill of Right, and the Declaration of Independence. Of the people, By the people For the people. Our representatives need to govern with the whole country in mind. Their special interest financiers should be satisfied with their particular points of view being considered only in the grand order of things.

Our representatives are wimps and they need to have that pointed out to them in no uncertain terms. This is after all the United States of America, and those corporations, businesses and moneyed power brokers (including religious institutions) have the best military, work force and infrastructure in the entire world at their disposal. They are lucky a place like the United States exists protects them their special interests (profit margin), and allows them to operate freely within the confines of their business and social circles. They need to realize their place is not at the head of the table that’s reserved for the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, The Declaration of Independence and our Nations laws. Their self interest (business profit, and theocracy specific dogma) has only a minor position when weighed against what is best for our Country and consistent with the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence and what is good for our health, and the planet that sustains our very existence.
