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
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?
