How do we get corporations out of government.

Large corperations run our government, thay donate huge amounts of money for which they are rewarded. The government no longer represents the people but rather the corporations. We are supposed to be a representitive republic but our needs are not being represented, the corporations are. This is why I'm in the occupy movement, to try and return to our constitution and excercise my rights. We want the government to represent us and not the corporations, they are not people. Everyone thinks we are there to get money from the 1%, while this may be true for many what I have just written is true for me and most in the movement.

    Jan 16 2012: Stop buying their products

    A simple concept. Maybe easier said than done, but not impossible.
    • Jan 17 2012: I do that as much as I can. I only but gas, food and clothes for the mast part but they are hard to escape. For instance I have to pay my utilities. Thanks for the comment and I hope others take your advice also. I think people should also move their money to small bank rather than the giants.
