quote: So we're exclusively blaming "the corporations" for everything that's ever gone wrong with our Government and society at large? How convenient. You're taking the Obama rhetoric and cranking it up to 11, I see. You realize you're dictating that we make corporations and employees second class citizens, right?Not that I'm against your idea exactly, but if it's gotten to the point that we have to cut our Constitution in half and split the country up between "us" and the "corporations", just because our elected officials have no integrity, I'm wondering what's the point? Might as well give up if things are that bad.You're trying to make a radical idea, that would effect virtually thousands of laws and statutes and require millions more pages of legislation, sound so simple and neat. Simply making an Amendment (and I would like to see how these same people would possibly PASS such a thing) can't be all there is to it. I would like to know the real meat and potatoes of how we legislate this. Not to mention actually enforce it. It doesn't stop under the table bribery, which is what would probably just happen anyway.
