Ron Paul calls obama a Corporatist, claims corporations are taking over country
Advertisements [?]
Hes a corporatist, Paul quickly added, meaning the president takes care of corporations and corporations take over and run the country.

Supporters of the Texas lawmaker appear to represent a significant number of the 3,500 attendees here, fueling speculation that Paul is likely to win the straw poll later today. The Campaign for Liberty, Pauls political outfit, declined to discuss how many of his supporters were at SRLC.

Some might agree with Paul in the sense that with the recent SCOTUS ruling have given corporations an even large influence and a bigger stake in our government.
