There's been a lot of Internet buzz about this article at the Progressive. It seems there's a program called "InfraGard" that is preparing corporations for Martial Law. Here's a quote from a business owner who attended an InfraGard meeting:
“Then they said when—not if—martial law is declared, it was our responsibility to protect our portion of the infrastructure, and if we had to use deadly force to protect it, we couldn’t be prosecuted."
It says in the article that corporations are more privy to our government intelligence than our elected officials are. This should remove all doubt as to who really runs America. Is it We the People? No. It's the corporations.
It's private corporations that count the vote that decides who our "elected officials" are even going to be! That is, if they don't already have that in the bag by buying off said officals with campaign contributions, or buying the public's loyalty with controlled media and the latest PR/commercial manipulation.
Here's a quote often attributed to Benito Mussolini: "Fascism should rightly be called Corporatism as it is a merge of state and corporate power." Whether or not you agree with this statement, it should be clear we are reverting from a society where power and resourses are being stolen from the many and given to the very few. This is intolerable. Too many people have fought and died for the principles behind the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution to let them be desecrated this way.
