Undue Influence and Duress

Undue influence is undue influence and conflict of interest is still what it amounts to no matter who is in office.

Until the rank and file voters who call themselves republicans wake up and realizes their middle class “self-interest” are being trounced by power brokers and stop worshiping lawless corporations we’ll have a problem a huge problem on our hands.

Consolidation of industry is akin to incest and is having the same results on our economy as it did on the royals lineage.

Innovation is being stifled as the status quo seeks to clamp down on power, corner the markets and eliminate competition. That’s what they do and its bad for America but in the Status Quo’s self interest.

Rampant egos of the likes of Murdoch (FOX Corp) and the Koch brothers demand autonomy and to do what they see fit, and to rule the world - literally I'm convinced of that and that their ego's are driving them that way.

But as they bleed the middle class dry they have their puppets in Congress block all meaningful change and the Country crumbles. Their bottom line comes first and to hell with everyone and everything else.

Diversity and sustainability a level playing field = a healthy country, healthy markets and a healthy economy for all. It also would pay handsome dividends to the power brokers across the board, but their greed has blinded them to this obvious macro-economic reality. Their mindset of being only in it for themselves hampers their bottom line from exploding exponentially into the stratosphere as they miserly operate from a mirco market point of view. They lack the common understanding of a vibrant interconnected market system. They only see top down.

The ROLLING BACK OF THE BUSH TAX BREAKS FOR THE RICHEST TWO PERCENT would be a start in taking back the Country from the Kleptocracy it has become. And is something the MAJORITY in this Country are pushing for - the airwaves and corporate media outlets are not to be trusted.

Well done Koch Industries and Rupert Murdoch and Rodger Alies…well done. You're corruption of government officials is about as unpatriotic as it gets.
