autocratic - characteristic of an absolute ruler or absolute rule; having absolute sovereignty; "an authoritarian regime"; "autocratic government"; "despotic rulers"; "a dictatorial rule that lasted for the duration of the war"; "a tyrannical government"

My question for this thread is does Corporate America and America's Corporate War Machine have more say in determining foreign and domestic policy than does the president? Could Corporate America alone drag the US into war, or would they always need to get approval from Congress and/or the President? Are there any scenarios where Corporate opinion trumps Presidential opinion?

If Corporate America is a heavy hand in determining US foreign policy and they are set to drag our country into another war, could the President or Congress do anything to prevent it?

Does anyone have evidence that American Corporations are putting their personal interests above those of the nation's during this ongoing War on Terror?

The reason I bring this topic up is because every year it seems Corporate America gets more and more powerful, and their influence becomes even greater in our personal lives. Not only are we expected to work for these corporations but we are also expected to live by their guidelines, no smoking, no drinking, no drugs, down the road no sex, no fast food, mandatory excersize at work, etc .etc. etc.
Communist Prisons don't even have as many rules and regulations. Seriously, what is the difference between working for an ultra strick corporation or a Commie/Facist Country?

Bush's domestic policies that are pro big business and limit the rights of an individual to sue another are going to make the US a less free country. If a Corporation knows they could NEVER get sued for nothing more than peanuts what do you think that would cause the coporation to do? Do you think more power given to the corporation will make a more efficient and prosperous worker, guess again.


Bush cares nothing for worker's rights and only cares about the bottom line. This sort of policy is destined to fail and proof of this is how it has already begun to fail to middle and lower classes.
Hugo Chavez would make for a better US President than Bush and Im not only American but Im also Republican.
