Who do you think is writing those thousand page bills? Most of these idiots in Congress couldn't find their butt cheeks with both hands, much less write anything longer than a letter home.• Many of the regulations that govern energy and banking sector were written by Corporations;
Monsanto and other big agra companies are patenting the genes of our food sources. What could wrong?• The biggest influence on legislative votes is often Corporate Lobbying;• Corporate ability to extend copyright far beyond what original protections amounts to a taking of public works for private corporate usage;
The wronged party with $200 in savings, the corporation with millions, billions from working closely with gov.• PAC and campaign finance by Corporations has supplanted individual donations to elections;• The individuals’ right to seek redress in court has been under attack for decades, limiting their options.
They rig it so you can't resale something you've bought, only they have the right to make money on it in perpetuity.• DRM and content protection undercuts the individual’s ability to use purchased content as they see fit;
Amazon patenting the one-click order. Microsoft patenting the idea of the computer basically.• Patent protections are continually weakened. Deep pocketed corporations can usurp inventions almost at will;
• The Supreme Court has ruled that Corporations have Free Speech rights equivalent to people; (So much for original intent!)
None of these are Democrat/Republican conflicts, but rather, are corporate vs. individual issues.
For those of you who are stuck in the old Left/Right debate, you are missing the bigger picture. Consider this about the Bailouts: It was a right-winger who bailed out all of the big banks, Fannie Mae, and AIG in the first place; then his left winger successor continued to pour more money into the fire pit.
What difference did the Left/Right dynamic make? Almost none whatsoever.
He sums up his point by stating:
But my bottom line is this: If you see the world in terms of Left & Right, you really aren’t seeing the world at all . . .So very true.
