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 The government no longer represents the people but rather the corporations.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 24 2012: I have gained some insights from other points of view from this topic. I hope it spills over into the other conversations or continues to a new one.

    The Beatles told us; "We can work it out" (he just didn't include John in the We)

    Thanks again James for your commitment to action.
