Cor­po­ra­tions part of prob­lem

The Kansas City Star (Sunday) - - LETTERS - Pa­trick McKen­zie

The an­swer to ev­ery­thing is not a cor­po­ra­tion. The mess we are in as a coun­try is be­cause of those in power will­ingly turn­ing over the keys to the na­tion to huge cor­po­ra­tions run by thieves in pin­stripes.

Cor­po­ra­tions are al­lowed to out­source our jobs, take our homes, hide on small is­lands to avoid taxes, raid the trea­sury and now spend un­lim­ited cash to buy our elec­tions. Those that seek to dom­i­nate and rule over a peo­ple, in­stead of lead­ing in a democ­racy, will al­ways learn from their mis­takes and try a dif­fer­ent tack. This is sim­ply an­other tack to cre­ate a two-tier so­ci­ety — the wealthy, elite, rul­ing class and the sub­servient work­ing class.

This must not stand, ei­ther through con­sti­tu­tional amend­ment or im­peach­ment of jus­tices, this must not stand or the very ex­is­tence of our rep­re­sen­ta­tive form of gov­ern­ment may be at stake.
