    again the the nether world of neoCons conjuring up misguided history.

    This time an imaginary essence, the notion of "corporation", is given life and flesh to become a person.

    The republican proclivity to use childish imagination as if is was real should scare us into action.

      are now threatening both our economy and our democrcy:

      A "corporation" is a person for purposes of politics.

      "Cash" is free speech.  

      In simple fact, both merely allow a manipulative and authoritarian elite to exert dangerously disproportionate levels of control over both our commerce and our politics.

      Neither Adam Smith nor any of our Founding Fathers would approve.

      If poverty and despair are not justifications for lawlessness, why are wealth and greed?
