George Orwell 1984
"Fascism, comprises a radical and authoritarian nationalist political ideology and a corporatist economic ideology." What we have today in America is corporate fascism.
Since 1990 the following have been the contributions to congress to influence their decisions for the corporate entity. Republicans have received this money at a rate of two to one to Democrats. One wonders why Republicans are so supportive of industry and no regulations, laissez-faire business practices. The corporations want no regulations and the freedom to maximize profits regardless of the social, environmental or moral impact.
Insurance companies have contributed to congress $320,802,051
The oil and gas companies have contributed $241,990,382
Pharmaceuticals / Health Products: Long-Term Contribution $174,233,253
Health Professionals: Long-Term Contribution Trends $469,130,499
Commercial Banks: Long-Term Contribution Trends $217,261,406
How the hell can the individual compete with corporate greed and corruption of our elected officials. What the people want is of little true importance to our elected officials. Congress is bought and paid for by the special interest corporate lobby. The corporations have the best media P.R. machine in the history of the world and they know how to use it. Half of America is brain washed by the corporate media machine supported by the Right Wing Media that is on board with their program of a corporate fascist society. They know how to frame an issue and re package it so that the American public will act directly against their own self interest and in the interest of the corporate entity that is acting in its own self interest and diametrically against the interest of the American people. The Republican Christian Conservatives play right into their hands with their fear of government and liberal ideology and Right Wing Media like Fox White Man News twists the truth and buys into the lies and propaganda of corporate power. It is time for America to wake up and throw the bastards out.
We need a revolution of conscience. No more automatic pensions for one term senators and congressmen, we need term limits for all the congress. We need laws to stop lobbyists and corporate contributions. No lobbyist within a thousand miles of congress. The massive corporations of the Oil and Coal, Health Care are out to get what they want at any cost. They will destroy America for profit and use the gullible and naive and those poor twisted souls who believe the bullshit of the Right to achieve their ends and in the end those poor bastards will be destroyed.
