WE all know of the antics going on in DC….all the back and forth about bi-partisanship…..the silly games played by some in the Congress….all in all our government is truly a political circus….it has been called that for decades and now they have sent in the clowns.
There is a simple way for all this partisanship and obstruction to end.
It would fall in the laps of corporate America.
If corporations were truly part of this country and the processes then they could step forward and turn off the money spigot to ALL politicians until they learn to play nice and get stuff done that is needed in this country.
That means all funds to politicians, lobbyists and think tanks until they show the progress of bi-partisanship….that means ALL groups that try and influence the political discourse.
After all the Supreme Court has rules that corporations are ‘people’ as well (think Citizens United).
Corporations have been doing well thanx to this corrupt system and now it is time for them to step forward and prove they are an American entity.
In the days of the Civil Rights Movement corporations flexed their muscle and pushed the LBJ admin tom pass and then sign the Act….why? The protests were costing them lots of money and their profits needed protecting.
These entities could do it again….especially now when they possess all the political power.
If they do not assist in the establishing rationality in the process then they should be pressured by all means necessary….taxation, sanctions anything that will get their laser focused attention…..
If they want to preserve those obscene profits then they need to become a participant other than throwing money at politicians.
There has been an attempt to get corporate American to wake up and do the right thing for the country…..an open letter…..
This ‘memo’ is about the voter suppression laws being passed in states on a lie….but it could be extended to encompass all the partisan BS……
We call upon our colleagues in Corporate America to join us in taking a non- partisan stand for equality and democracy. Each of us stands ready to work with you on what can and must be done.
Just A Thought!
