One thing keeps cropping up as people talk about Occupy Wall Street and why they’re so angry: Corporations have complete dominance of the political process. Thanks to the Supreme Court overturning 90 years of precedent and tossing out all restrictions on corporate political contributions, they can now spend unlimited amounts of money to elect or defeat any politician they choose.
Didn’t know that corporate campaign spending had been turned into a giant free-for-all? That was the Citizens United decision, which changed our political system in huge ways, and it’s why a lot of us are going out today and marching for a society in which people have as much say as corporations.
Human rights for human beings, not corporations!
