During your time as Governor, have you found corporate influence/lobbying to be over-balanced compared to purely civic-minded concerns over public
issues? No specific names or identifying comments are being asked, only the level
of this "balance" is being addressed.
In your associations with other State & Federal Officers, how often have you found them to be working at cross-purposes to their Constitutional Duties
& Limitations of Office? Again, I seek an answer only within your experience, based on the frequencies of such occurences.
How often have you seen the broadcast/print media report in direct contradiction to what actual facts
that you've learned in your position as
Governor? Again, I ask only the frequency
on media being misrepresentative.

In relationship though, how much do you think that the Commander-in-Chief actually orders the military around for Corporate interests instead of

Awesome! That's the exact pic that didnt work in my post - and what a ripper movie too
IMO, even the Predator had to resort to bushwhacking Jessie from behind because it couldn't handle facing Jessie in the open...

How do you suppose the American people can go about prosecuting the current administration for the crimes it has committed on the American public?
A related question: How the hell are we going to find people to replace them that won't try the same shenanigans?
And finally: Would you consider hanging around ATS more & contribute postings?
