  •  In this country, it is the CORPORATIONS (7+ / 0-)

    we need to fear, not the government.

    I have no idea who defends us from them.

    Nobody, I think.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

    •  The corporations... (1+ / 0-)
      Recommended by:

      are controlled by people - according to the IRS annual report, 400 individuals control more wealth than the bottom 150,000,000 people in this country - THOSE people, controlling the corporations, also control BOTH major parties. By controlling the parties, they control the electoral process.

      90% of the media is owned by only 6 corporations - also under the control of the 400 individuals above, for the most part.

      Therefore, a small group of very wealthy folk (a plutocracy), aided and abetted by some very influential, but not wealthy folk (combined with the plutocracy, forming a controlling oligarchy) control the parties and the message getting out to "the folk".

      So, you are half right - we should fear the control of the corporations, but since they control the government - the corporations ARE THE GOVERNMENT in fascist America.
