Five members of the Supreme Court declared
that a “corporation” is a person, not a “regular person” but one above
all natural laws, subject to no God, no moral code but one with
unlimited power over our lives, a power awarded by judges who seem
themselves as grand inquisitors in an  meant to hunt down all hertics
who fail to serve their god, the god of money.

Their ruling has made it legal for foreign
controlled corporations to flush unlimited money into our bloated
political system to further corrupt something none of us trust and most
of us fear.  The “corporation/person” that the 5 judges, the “neocon”
purists, have turned the United States over to isn’t even American. 
Our corporations, especially since our economic meltdown are owned by
China, Russia and the oil sheiks along with a few foreign banks.  They
don’t vote, pay taxes, fight in wars, need dental care, breathe air,
drive cars or send children to school.  Anyone who thinks these things
are people is insane.  Anyone who would sell our government to them is
a criminal and belongs in prison.  There is nothing in the Constitution
that makes this “gang of five” bribe sucking clowns above the law. 
There is nothing in the Constitution that even mentions corporations
much less gives them status equal to or greater than the Executive,
Legislative and Judicial branches of government. 

The Supreme Court of the United States has
no right to breathe human life into investment groups owned by
terrorist sympathizers, foreign arms dealers or groups working for the
downfall of the United States and everything we believe in, but 5
“justices” have done just that.  We now have a new government above our
government, above our people, one above any law.   Five judges have
created institutionalized gangsterism as the new form of government for
the United States.

No American soldier can ever go to war
fighting for a Chinese hedge fund, a German bank or a Saudi Arabian
fertilizer company.  Will our new debates in Congress be between
members representing the opium warlords against the Columbian cartels? 
Their cash, which long ago has infiltrated one major corporation or
bank after another is now heading for your local representative.   How
important do you think secure borders for America are for these new
policial “influencers?”  

For years we complained about AIPAC, the
Sierra Club, the NRA, trial lawyers, trade unions, NAM (National
Association of Manufacturers) and the churches that got involved in
politics.  Behind all of these were people, American citizens, and, on
some occasions, Americans who fought for their country, raised kids
here and were invested in the survival of America although they didn’t
always act that way.  This was an American problem.  Now we aren’t even
sure we have an America anymore.

Anyone who believes that a massive flood
of corporate money into politics won’t throw control of both houses of
Congress into the hands of the wealthy nations that are also our
primary strategic enemies, you know the ones, the ones loaded with oil
cash, the ones with 10 cent an hour labor and legal systems that  shoot
first and ask questions later.  They just were told they can buy the
United States, not just our government, but our military, and the lives
of our soldiers.  They can now make our laws, raise our taxes, decide
on our civil rights, where we can live, if we can own guns, how late we
stay up, where and what we drive and, eventually, how we think.  The
Supreme Court has given foreign owned corporations the eventual power
to silence us all.

When a corporation commits a crime, nobody
goes to jail.  When wars come, they don’t fight, they simply rake in
cash.  When children are poisoned or workers are killed, they seldom
even pay a fine.  However, when they want something, billions in tax
money for “bail outs” or fat contracts or special laws, they have
always gotten it.  It  has been a battle to control corporations for
140 years.  Sometimes the American people have lost, sometimes they
have won.  Our greatest presidents are the ones who reined in corporate
power and kept the influence of money over humanity in check.  Think of
Theordore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman,
Dwight Eisenhower and John Kennedy. 

Without them we would be living in work
camps, stuck at machines all day, our children at our sides.  We would
be paid in beans and salt pork, dying at 40 in filth like people around
the world who live in countries controlled by corporations.

Based on the justices that we want
prosecuted being Reagan/Bush “conservatives” you would think this is
a liberal/conservative issue.  Nothing could be further from the
truth.  Nothing less “conservative” has ever been done by a branch of
our government.  There is nothing “conservative” about our Supreme
Court going insane and abandoning our Constitution and making medical
decisions, not to give life to a fetus, but to a bank account. 

This is nothing but an extremely
unAmerican and unpatriotic group of thieves believing that Americans
had given up so many of their civil liberties in silence during the
Global War on Terror scam that opening the “Pandora’s Box” of
class conflict could now be done with nobody saying a word.  Their
“corporate person” is now a Baron or Duke, the great landlords of the
medieval period.  Americans are now destined for serfdom.  Their
political and economic theories, what are they?  Is it conservatism or

We are already burdened with a
representative government that has tied itself to the money
spigot because of the incredible cost of media exposure in campaigns. 
People running for office in ancient Rome would purchase thousands of
animals for slaughter in the arena.  Mass executions were staged as
media events for political campaigns.  In fact, the arenas in every
Roman city were built for that purpose, today replaced by television
and the internet.  We thought we had changed since that time.  We were

The framers of the Constitution created
the Supreme Court, the Electoral College and originally had Senators
appointed, not elected, to protect the wealthy from having their money
and land seized by the masses who would otherwise have controlled the
government.  This was the 1780s.  The only “democracy” we knew about
was ancient Athens, where the majority of the people living there were
slaves.    27 Amendments later, including the Bill of Rights, we have
worked to define justice and decency.  Generations have fought and died
to keep life in our imperfect system from 1780.  Who would have thought
that 5 people could destroy it all?

Political debate in America is sometimes
extreme, often bordering on violence.  Feelings are high.  How many
times have you heard people threaten to leave the country because
“their America” no longer exists.  We know that few really mean
it.  When faced with a real threat, no people on earth are to be feared
like Americans.  When help is needed, no people on earth are to
be trusted and relied on like Americans.  This is the pride we have in
our country and ourselves.  We never agree on anything.  We aren’t
supposed to, we are Americans.

Everything we built has been based on a
balance, race, religion, ethnicity, social standing, political beliefs,
regional interests, all striving and compromising to build something we
are all secretly very proud of, something all of us are willing to
fight for and many are.  Americans all agree on one thing, that our
government in Washington is out of control and has been for some time. 
We all have different ideas on this but agree on the fact itself.  We
wonder where the politicians come from, men too often “less great” than
those of the past, in fact, less great than average.  Decisions are
continually made that most find puzzling and, in fact, are driven by a
rotten underbelly of corruption and self interest.

Now, 5 members of the Supreme Court,
people none of us voted for, a group that is answerable to no authority
and, seemingly, no law or moral code, a group famous for immoderation,
poor judgement and low personal integrity has, either through
blindness, avarice or insanity clearly done something so malicious, so
unjust and so utterly inconsistent with our Constitution that they,
themselves, have become an “enemy of the people.”

What is their power?  What they have done
is not within the scope of the authority given through
the Constitution.  Their acts are outside the law, their acts are those
of a conspiracy, their acts are meant to diminish our freedoms, our
sacred institutions and even endanger our lives.  Typically, such acts
are called crimes and those who commit them are criminals.

What could drive judges, albeit judges
appointed with little thought as part of a cheap political ploy, to
abandon any American consitutency?  Corporations have no religion. 
They care nothing for the unborn.  They have no allegiance to a flag, a
family or any moral ethic.  They serve no person, owe no loyalty other
that to stockholders, shadowy groups of Russian oligarchs, Chinese
banks, corrupt dictators grown fat on the spoils of their people or the
international consortiums of bond and currency speculators who have,
for decades, abandoned any economic law to build the etherial “house of
cards” we call the “world economy.”

The control of the American electoral
process has been given to them.  No serving politican can survive now
standing against them.  Years ago “they” bought our newspapers and our
television networks.  Fact and truth became whatever they wanted us to
believe.  “They” gained control of what many thought and what almost
all of us see and hear.  That wasn’t enough.  They wanted it all.  As
their control has grown, so has terrorism, continual war, economic
poverty for millions Americans and insensitivity to justice and
humanity.  Who would expect anything else from a corporation with no
blood, no heart and no face?

The Founding Fathers led America on the
path to freedom and eventual democracy.  The Federalists limited the
ability of an impetuous electorate to seize power and “reform” America
into chaos and anarchy.  This system of government was predicated on
the belief that love of country would always burn brightly in America
and with progress, freedom and bounty was the ineviable reward of our
industry.  It is only now too obvious that so much has happened that
was unforseen.  It is not a denial of our traditions to correct wrongs
when we find them.  This was how America was created.  We are drowning
in wrongs, we all finally agree on this.

The time is now.  Party politics have
failed.  Political theories are little more than empty rhetoric meant
to mislead and misinform.  State has become church and church has
become state.  State is less just and church less godly.  All we have
left is “we, the People.”  This is how we began and it is now all we
have to move forward.  It is time for the states to call for a
Constitutional Convention to establish, not just a Republic, but a
Democracy, by and for the people, the American people, rich and poor, a
nation loyal to itself, not tied to corporations, a vast military
industrial complex or endless foreign alliances.

If it is to be a genuinely conservative
nation, one with individual freedoms, a small government, fewer taxes
and more opportunity, a nation as intended, then we will all have to
live with it.  The bloated corpse we are creating in Washington
is emitting a stench we can no longer abide.  We will be saying goodbye
to our Supreme Court, our seniority system in Congress and our
political machines pretending to be “parties”  and hello to paper
ballots, a free press, term limits and the ability to yank a scoundrel
out of office when we catch one.
