193. I understand, a number of people believe that the single most necessary
amendment to the Constitution is one that says corporations have none of the rights of individuals.

Corporations allow people with incredible wealth to limit their risk to the capital they have invested and protect their personal wealth. Add that protection to their goal of eliminating corporate taxes, dividend taxes, estate taxes and capital-gains taxes and in a few decades, a handful of familys own all out financial wealth.

On top of that, they use the Department of Commerce to advance their programs, use the Department of Defense to protect their worldwide assets, and the Department of State to pressure other governments to kowtow to their business interests. They've even got the President and Congress to sign trade treaties that make the US Supreme Court subservient to an international arbitration panel that is not bound by US law.

That's the real threat of the people who fund AWOL and his cronies. :shrug:
