    Considering presidential campains are exected to hit 1 billion dollar budgets this year thanks to the 'superpack' rule, with most of this money coming from corporations which are not people, rather entities of profit devouring greed, how can we continue to live with this lie that this is a republic??

    Wouldnt this be a better, more accurate term to refer to our government??

    Is not our means of production, distribution, and exchange totally regulated by the 'community'??? Most business owners will agree with me that this is far far away from a free market.

    Is this not a brief description of how our government works once these lap dogs get elected??? Left, right, it doesnt matter. Is this not the Norm??

    These two definitions of corruption go hand in hand. Most acts of dishonesty and fruad are being sold to us by corrupting words and expressions in media propaganda.

    Given all of this, why wouldnt everyone welcome change???

    I think this is the reason. People that are doing well are fighting very hard to keep things exactly the way they are. Thats why nomatter who you elect nothing ever changes.

    This is your revolution.

    the community may regulate , but it does not own the production or the industry.

    Remove any and all corporate funding of campains and officials of any kind. Corporations are not people, they should have no rights, and they most certianly should not be placed above living breathing people.

    All of our problems today can be traced back to corporate involvment, which is traced back to violations of the constitution and bill of rights. It is high time we return to the rule of law.

    I just wanted to point out that on this constitution day Ron Paul has already raised .567 million dollars, all from grassroots people just like me. I'm gonna go donate my 50$, in the mean time you neocons and commies can sulk about how shallow and fake your corporate lap dogs are.

    You can see the live dollar figure here: https://secure.ronpaul2012.com/index.php?sr=14-dp1

    Anyone mainstream? Its time to join the revolution.

    This morning I checked it, its up to 862k. All grassroots money from people like me and you.

    And Ron Paul is unelectable??? I think not, considering most of his campain money has come from people.

    VS Romney and Perry who get money from corporate power. Maybe thats why they have such different messages??

    Plastic men go down 2012. American voters demand better.
