40. Excellent post...
We are truly marching toward a frightening situation. It worsens every day. By now,
anyone who is paying attention understands that the process has been perverted by
corporate money and how campaigns are financed.

If you want to know if our politicians are owned by the corporations, all you have to
do is look at the legislation that is passed. It is truly frightening.

This is NOT the Democratic party. Anyone who believes that the Democratic party is
about politicians who are bought off by large corporations--has lost their way.

We have to fix things. We can't stand around waxing poetic about how marvelous the Democratic
party is, and how we should be loyal. Loyal to what...corporatism? A healthcare bill that
is a giveaway to big insurance? The decimation of our civil rights? That's not the Democratic
party. That's the corporations talking.
