In 2007 I wrote about our faltering Democracy, the role of the Military Industrial Complex and my concern about large corporations; Democracy from the Bottom Up.
We’ve made progress since; an American-African is President, healthcare reform has begun, don’t ask don’t tell has been repealed, to name but a few.
Yet, the United States Supreme Court ruled that corporations are now people and crony Wall Street investment bankers, traders and speculators continue to run roughshod over the American people and expect us to bail them out. Unless corporations are reigned in and the individuals who profit off the sweat and labor of the people are held accountable, we will become another marginalized populace with China and the mega conglomerates in charge.
“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.”
Stand up, be loud, be heard and be counted. We are not sheep under the control of a government. This is our government. Take it back, NOW!
