  •  Yeah, "One share, one vote" Shares are people too! (6+ / 0-)

    Liberate the stock shares! let them vote in political elections not just for corporate board nominees...

    Vote to accept takeover bids for US assets, vote to accept mergers with corporations who will privatize govt.. and get direct feedback from the public via snap gameshow polls or smart phone quizzes. Vote Corporate and get free buzz points on your next purchase!

    It's the future!

      Shareholders tend to want corporations to protect the environment and think long term and stuff. Votes should be reserved for those who hold at least 20% of stock or are on the board of directors.

      The founding fathers knew of the mutually corrupting influences of Church and state, wisely sending them to opposite corners.

        a little democracy goes a long way in corporate land... so let the CEO and preferred stock holders have automatic proxy voting for the rest... or make each one 3/5 of a person... I mean share...

    •  Why do they call them "shares" of stock? (0+ / 0-)

      I thought conservatives didn't believe in sharing.
