The Daily Collegian:
(THE MASSACHUSETTS DAILY)
By: CHRISTOPHER DUNAY | September 25, 2011
We empower corporations – by poorly educating our voters and allowing corporate interests to influence the way we vote – to dictate their expenses, their taxes, and their profits. Corporations, especially those in the energy sector, are the decisions makers; we’ve given them the keys and they’re not easily taken back.
This corporate hand festers in the halls of Congress, as well. We are deceived into believing “Starve the Beast” style economic policies are fiscally viable, policies that embolden the wealthiest of Americans and reduce citizen protections, all of which are deepening our federal debt and widening class divides.
So my friends, grab a white flag, hang it high and hang it proud. We are the middle-class. We concede.
