76. The root cause is candidates willing to sell themselves for corporate money ....
Edited on Sat Jun-25-11 02:36 AM by defendandprotect
and basically selling our government which has been going on for more than

40 years now -- which Ralph Nader, btw, was pointing out 40 years ago!

THAT led to control over our government agencies by corporations --

distorting their very purpose and intent --

and needless to say, the selling out of our Congress moved the Congress to the

corporate right -- thereby unleashing the corporate crime wave we are suffering.

Granted Nixon began the attacks on what was left of our free press -- but it

was Congress failing to enforce anti-trust laws and collusion between both parties

to deregulate capitalism and to break the tax code for the benefit of elites

which allowed the complete takeover of our press by a corporate press.

Again -- think the Gore article has a lot to contribute to discussions here and

we need to take more time with it --

Didn't have time to reread it tonight -- perhaps by tomorrow night.

It's a much neglected article, imo.
