Real Bipartisanship in the U.S.?!

February 18, 2010

It’s nice to see broad agreement on an important topic in America. Both left and right can finally agree on something. We all want to do away with government of the corporation by the corporation and for the corporation. 80% of all Americans oppose the latest SCOTUS ruling on corporate buying of politicians and the numbers are similar among democrats, independents, and republicans. The fact that the corps now have the ability to spend even more to buy politicians than they already did may make it very hard to do anything on this important issue. However, it’s nice to have something we can all rally around and agree upon regardless of our political labels.

Left and right united in opposition to controversial SCOTUS decision

Jews, Muslims, Hindus Agree On Chicken

I read both of these articles in a book that is a collection of articles entitled The I Hate Corporate America Reader. There are many other great and depressing articles in that book as well.
