Desperately needed...finance reform?

Hey folks,

Guess what? The Supreme Court went back to work today and the topic of discussion was the oh so compelling, special interest, corporately funded argument for election reform.

Why? Well, it seems that an act of congress passed in 1907 is spoiling these corporations efforts to continue to purchase and own the votes of publicly elected politicians. The Tillman & Publicity Act's of 1907 and 1910, set limits to campaign financing for corporations, and ensured that full disclosure of these contributions be made available to the public.

I'll admit, that until this morning, I didn't even know the name of this law, but anything that stands in the way of corporations having the right to own the vote of politicians that are supposed to be serving the public, should be squashed. I mean come on, where's the fairness in allowing disclosure?

How the hell are corporations supposed to work in the shadows, perverting everything that stands in the way of their need for profit, when any Joe can look up their local representative on the internet to discover whose interests they best represent?

The Tillman act is part of a socialist agenda meant to handicap large corporations, whose tenuous existence barely survives with limited liabilities, Constitutional recognition as individuals, tax loopholes you could drive whole armies through, and profit margins barely in the billions.

These act's needs to be rescinded immediately! That way, we can move on to more important stuff, like dissolving the House and Senate entirely and replacing them with a business council headed by Donald Trump!

Yeah! Can't you picture it? I mean, if we just let the corporations have their way, we wouldn't have to bother with public voting at all. Lets just trust them to decide what was best for all of us.

It would be a god damn modern day utopia! Oh yeah, I wanna be a part of that reality.

Joe
