This is the fundamental fact of American political life:
Ultra-wealthy corporations and banks are the ultimate power behind the U.S. government today.
We want higher wages/salaries. They want to maximize their profits.
We want to pay a reasonable price for gasoline. They want to maximize their profits.
We want to live in decent housing. They want to maximize their profits.
We want to enjoy a clean, unpolluted, unravaged environment. They want to maximize their profits.
We want to eat clean, healthy, non-mutant food. They want to maximize their profits.
We want a genuine democracy, with real candidates to vote for. They want to maximize their profits.
We don't want to exploit and enslave impoverished working people in foreign lands nor drop cluster bombs on innocent children. They want to maximize their profits.
"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power."
