My Thoughts and News

Those who hide the truth or prevent the truth from being known, are the very ones who wish to hide the real truth and rewrite history.

What you can do to help end Corporations hold on American Politics.

I very strongly encourage everybody to send each of their Congressmen and Senators the following letter – phone them in about 2-3 weeks and pressure them to give you a response in a timely manner.

Dear Congressman/Senator,

The most common complaint I hear from friends and relatives and co-workers – i.e. the majority of the voters – real live people – is that the Congress “does not represent me ! [i.e. the living people of all walks of life]”

I wish to quote an item I found in http://informationclearinghouse.info/article3310.htm

Long before the birth of the American Republic, the British crown adapted the corporation that was the form of ancient universities into a device to dominate British colonies throughout the world, including those on this continent. Through their “crown corporations” the Kings of England and their designated agents governed, taxed, and controlled the production and trade and skimmed off the profits of their colonial lands and subjects, enforcing their reign by military means. When our forebears revolted, defeated the British, and formed the United States, we also wiped out the King’s corporations. They ceased to exist here. That was part of what independence meant to our founding fathers.

By the time of our civil war, however, the “robber barons,” those famous, greedy, wealthy, ruthless American industrialists, had again found ways to establish device of British kings to their own aggrandizement. In court case after court case for almost a century and a half, corporation lawyers have refined and perfected the legal immunities and powers of these artificial, state-created, wealth-hoarding, irresponsible entities. Beginning in 1886, they prevailed upon the U.S. Supreme Court to grant them virtually all of the constitutional rights of citizens. This in effect allowed them to resume the role of their royal predecessors in ruling the country. In cahoots with their banks, huge corporations now control America‘s body politic by reason of their bald-faced purchases of the three branches of the American government and America‘s
major media.

In consequence, by the beginning of the 21st Century the United States had ceased to function as a republic, much less as a democracy. These giant corporations, headed in most instances by members of an extremely wealthy elite group of multimillionaires and even billionaires, subvert healthy enterprise and true entrepreneurship. One percent of those at the top of the economic scale now have as much wealth as the bottom 95%, and the ratio keeps worsening. We humans, reduced to being “the non-corporate citizens” of the United States, retain only those rights and benefits that Corporate America allows us. Corporations in essence now elect and control our government, write virtually all its laws, and have control of the police, the courts, and the military.

This same Corporate America, ensconced now as “the only superpower,” through its foreign subsidiaries and the state-corporate world-governing instruments, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, and the International Monetary Fund, effectively controls the entire world. We Americans have come full circle in these past 225 years. We overthrew the British King’s corporate rulers in 1776, but now we suffer the domination of American corporate rulers who are also colonizing the rest of the world on behalf of themselves. [end]

My questions to you:

Who do you represent – the voters ( living people ) who voted you into office or the corporations (artificial entities)?

Do the corporations (artificial entities) have a power to vote for the Congressional office? In other words, does one vote in any election represent one live person or one artificial entity?

If you represent living people who voted you into office, then why do corporations (artificial entities) have more say on issues in the halls of Congress than living people?

Would you listen to us, “we the people”, as living individuals or families more if we living individuals/families formed a “corporation”?

Sincerely,
