Our country is no longer controlled by, and for, We the People, but instead by, and on behalf of, international banking and multinational corporate interests. While the gradual, almost imperceptible takeover of our government by this corporate fascism has been evolving by design for many decades, it is a coup d'etat nonetheless and has been disastrous for the vast majority of Americans. This blog is an exploration and discussion of how this occurred, and the damage it has done to our democratic processes.

Buy an Office? Legal. Sell an Office? Go to Prison.

Donna Smith presents some compelling questions in her article, Two-Faced Corporate Personhood: Elected and Convicted, as to why it's a criminal offense -- a felony -- to sell a political office, yet it's perfectly okay, as sanctioned by the Supreme Court of the United States, to buy one. Read the link here and let me know what you think. 

Also, here's an episode of The Colbert Report dealing with the question of corporate personhood. Although almost a year old, it's as fresh and timely as if it were filmed yesterday. Enjoy Stephen Colbert and The Word...
