From Joe Manchik for Congress:
Today, the American people are facing the end of democracy and the defeat of the American Revolution. Clearly, the corrupt Democratic-Republican Duopoly Party in power in Washington today has fallen into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed multinational corporations, exactly as Thomas Jefferson spoke of two hundred years ago in 1816.
The Supreme Court's disastrous decision on Citizens United v. FEC in January of 2010 quite effectively legalized bribery throughout our American government by allowing unlimited campaign contributions by multinational corporations to be paid to the candidates running for office in the Democratic-Republican Duopoly Party. This came into fruition when Citizens United introduced the concept of corporate personhood into the American legal system, which now allows multinational corporations to buy our legislators in Congress and in The White House with campaign contributions.
As a result, in return for their corporate money, these legislators now allow several multinational corporations to write the legislation passed by our corporate owned Congress, and it gets signed into law by our corporate owned president, in order to increase the corporate profits of the multinational corporations that own the Democratic-Republican Duopoly Party. This corporate legislation then completely eliminates taxes through tax loopholes for corporations and wealthy individuals and by completely eliminating the costly environmental regulations that are required to protect the American people.
This is why there are massive amounts of gas spewing into our atmosphere in California today and why there are so many multinational oil corporations contaminating our water supplies all across America today with the toxic hydraulic fluids required for fracking being pumped into our water aquifers. This is also why Barack Obama has been pushing for the passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, which was written by multinational corporations for the benefit of multinational corporations, and this why Barack Obama is committed to signing the TPP into law as soon as Congress passes it and places it into his hands. The TPP will sign the American people's sovereignty over our nation to the multinational corporations that own the Democratic-Republican Duopoly Party today.
Sadly, multinational military industrial contractors have also benefited tremendously through the passage of Citizens United by allowing them to bribe our legislators in Washington to start wars throughout the world, so that they can get more BILLIONS of OUR tax dollars to finance and manufacture the weapons of war. Additionally as a result of this, the multinational oil corporations that also own our elected representatives in Washington get more BILLIONS of petrodollars when they steal the oil and the gas from the innocent victims of the nations that the United States occupies.
The passage of Citizens United, and the determination that Citizens United is constitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States, has clearly perverted the Constitution of the United States, and someone needs to fix this problem for the American people. This is what I want to do for the American people, but I need to go to Washington to do it.
