Opportunity and Treason

The Massachusetts election was a message to the establishment in Washington that they are too cozy with the banks, phrma, the health insurers, and wall street . Only a day later the Supreme court hands down a decision that amounts to treason, allowing corporations whose person hood is an obvious falsehood to trump the people’s voice in our faltering democracy .

The best solution in the wake of both the special election and this obscenity from the supreme court is to pass a constitutional amendment revoking the ridiculous claim of person hood for corporations and there by protections under the first amendment .

Entities which exist simultaneously all over the globe , who can clone themselves , have unlimited resources , never die and are comprised of many stockholders who are not American citizens are not people !

The arrogance of the five justices may yet turn out to be a blessing in disguise. However if this ruling stands, without a constitutional amendment to fix it ,the only place democracy will find a voice is in the streets !

The root of all our largest problems in Washington is the intrusion of corporations in our government .

All attempts at reform and to address the dire problems which confront our species on planet earth, war, poverty, and the environment are rebuffed and repelled by these moral less entities, who by there very legal definition exist solely to pursue profit for their stockholders.

This may well be the best opportunity we have ever been given to fix the root of the problem !

No problems only solutions !

Think of this ruling as part of the “healing process” . This is an opportunity !

Our opponent is off balance.

It has been a piece meal approach up till now .

By Scotus over stepping themselves they have left their flank exposed.

Just because they are rich and powerful doesn’t mean they’re smart.

Tell the democrats that the population which handed them an electoral defeat in Mass,because of bank bailouts and talk of a mandate unanimously agrees that corporations have too much power in their government!

Let any republican who wants to go down in defeat in November oppose such an amendment

Why the Massachusetts Elections Are The Next Best Thing to a Popular Uprising

I'm a progressive and my hard work helped the democrats over two election cycles into a majority in both houses of congress and the presidency .

If Coakley loses, The Health Insurer Corporate Welfare Act of 2010 goes down and the American people win.
May I suggest a little hard ball ?

A Coakley defeat would be a shot across the bow of the establishment .

It would eliminate the 60 vote super majority we gave them .

It would kill the corporations bogus reform as it is now or force the democrats to do what they wouldn’t do to pass what the public wanted , the public option, by using only 51 votes in the senate.

It would send a wake up call to the party’s leadership and all those seeking re election that unless they move left their screwed in November .

The symbolic value of this being Kennedy’s vacated seat , the man who this reform is to be named after is priceless.Perhaps the symbolic value of that seat is more important than the seat itself ?

The downside ? The loss of a senate seat that will only be occupied for two years by a non progressive candidate !
