    corporations were declared to be people.  Now Corporate interest is the name of the game.  Do you think we will ever get to the benefit OF the people and FOR the people who are actual people?

    •  The US Constitution fully allows for (0+ / 0-)

      ...corporate control over the nation. After all, it was written to appease slave holders in the various states.

      In the end, I do believe that people get the constitution that they deserve.

      And, I also believe that people have the right -- and should enjoy the experience -- to live under a government they love.

      One can only speculate about the past, but I believe the world (and America) would be a better place if the US had divided into separate nations years ago. I believe a regional split is inevitable and the people will be much happier. We can't go on like this.

      The fear that this Diary causes (that you can see from the comments) -- fear that the other side will take over -- is what paralyzes the evolution of the nation and the fulfillment of the people's will.

      It's time for this cell to divide.

        because I just reported what I read.  I am not advocating
        for any kind of overthrowing of this country ,  I do advocate on educating the masses to realize they have a stake in how their politicians are behaving and I don't mean sleaze photos or some sort of marital infidelity but
        to wake up and get involved in the process.  I really feel many are just Not with it.  We have to have some sort of
        sane legislation and some moderation in all areas.  Separation of church and state is a very good start.

          I also am very disappointed in many corrupt things that are going on but destroying the union is just not what I am up to but you must remember not all people are educated and do  believe the propoganda passed to them.  They are just not smart enough to know their own best interests.  They have not been educated to know truth from fiction .  My Lord Palin comes to mind quickly.  I really do not believe the people deserved Palin in Alaska.
        There will always be Elmer Gantrys and cons and someone has to point them out.. That should be a given if apeople wants to survive.   I do agree it cannot continue as is. because the people have been dumbed down.

      declared people by the SCOTUS. What the Court has ruled is that corporations have some of the same rights of "human persons"
