The American Dream Is An American Lie A Long As Corporations Are In Control

In the United states, the gap between the haves and the have-nots is increasing. the people who do all the work have nothing,while the fat cats who sit on their buts doing nothing keep getting richer.The empire of the elite is built on the broken backs of the working class. How is this right? I seriously doubt that our founding fathers intended this country to be ran by the corporate elite.

A subject that most Americans do not Know of, is that of corporate personhood. So, what exactly is corporate personhood? The Idea of corporate personhood is the idea that a corporation is legally a person, and therefore deserves the same rights and privileges as citizens. This concept is backed by the united states government. Nowadays corporations have more rights than people do. This ideology led to the  deregulation of the corporations during the bush administration, which was on of the major causes of our recent economic collapse.

      Today we live in a world in which corporate interests are the main driving force of political policy. Any law or regulation designed to protect citizen or the environment will pass, but only if it doesn’t infringe the corporations’ “right” to profit. So if the politicians make the rules and corporations influence political policy, then one could conclude that corporations make the rules.

   Here in the United States, citizens do not work for the politicians, the politicians work for the citizens and corporations are not citizens. We need to raise our voices and say “enough is enough”. Political policy should coincide with the needs of the people and not the greed of corporate America. When the government becomes corrupt, it is our right, if not our duty, to petition the government for a redress of grievances and there by influencing policy. As Gandhi said:

 “If the people lead, governments will follow”

Well, it is time for the people to lead.

You know I would have a battle of wits with you but you would run out of ammunition too fast.

Most small businesses are incorporated, even one man businesses. Your ignorance knows no bounds and yet you come across as all knowing. I have an IQ of 136 and a verbal IQ of 148. You would do well to listen more and stop with the put downs much less. You might actually check your facts before running your mouth.

First of all you are the one running your mouth.I am refering to Major corporations.You have the IQ of a toaster. If you don’t like what I am writing, don’t readit. in my article I was not talking a`bout small buisnesses, soi stop your shit. these corporations have lobbyists that pay off government officials, and it should be illlegal. Take your republican ideology and shove it somewhere.Usually the people going around saying how high of an IQ they have, are usually the biggest idiots.

Someone who is actually smart need not brag about it.
