13. We are starting to see who the corporations have their hooks in to.

It's very sad to see people like Barney Frank and Howard Dean sell out. There are others I could name, but I don't feel like fighting today.

People are not stopping to think of the shear power of all of that money. I have watched BP warp everything their way after the Gulf oil spill. Most people think it was resolved with a non-existent 20 billion dollar fund. The Class Settlement paid only 1/3 of the victims anything, usually not even close to what they lost. 2/3rds got nothing but denied.

That's just one big corporation. They ALL THROW MONEY AROUND WASHINGTON! If you have their support you win, without it you lose. The candidates are pre-selected before we even vote so we vote for who they put up. Bernie is trying to change that dynamic. We need to remember who sided with who when this is over. We need our own slate of candidates for the next mid-term election! I did not choose to live under corporate rule!
