Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power." -- Benito Mussolini.
We live in a land where the great masses of the population has no real voice, while a corporation has the right to spend unlimited amounts of money
to effect its political ambitions.
A land where a corporation is allowed to hide what they feed us and the people have no right to know what they are eating. Our beef is packed full of
hormones that are illegal in much of the world even China, and genetically modified crops rule the day. A land where a corporation controls our press
and in turn holds sway over public opinion etc.. A person could go on and on here you know!
We don't have a democracy people we have Crony capitalism. Add to that fact all federal agencies will just laugh off any Congressional oversight and
in turn be unaccountable to the people.
What does that make our system of Government? Should we coin a term?
"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all
experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which
they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under
absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security"
A more perfect union was the goal of our forefathers! We can effect the same!
When Holder and other fed agencies can just ignore contempt of Congress charges we no longer have a government which answers to the people. When
secret police rule the day and our every move and every word we speak is recorded and monitored. When the president can use signing powers to bypass
Congress and effect or rewrite laws. We no longer a representative democracy but rather Despotism.
Congress has failed us folks, and we need a better form of representation and a clear separation of powers between the WH and a redesigned Congress.
No men regardless of position in the government should be above the law! Secret police must be abolished and systems which threaten core American
values should be abolished. We are not Nazis, we are Americans. It is time we started acting like it!
