There are so many reasons why the primary goal of 2010 for all who "want to take their country back", with the exception of racists, is to obliterate the myth of corporate personhood. This goal should be the top priority in 2010 for liberals and conservatives alike. This goal should be the top priority for those who want to elect the best candidate to any office, but realize that candidate can't even run for office because that candidate doesn't have and can't raise the money to buy the office.

The Real Beginning of Fascism?

If the word fascism would have been used at the time of the American Revolution, it could very well have been used in reference to the actions of King George III as he was utilizing corporations such as the East India Company to literally fight his fights for him.

In fact, after its chartering by Queen Elizabeth of England in 1600, The East India Company became the "owner and ruler" of The Commonwealth of Virginia. Thus, as one of the definitions of fascism used in today's world is the partnership between the government and the corporate world in ruling a state or nation, Virginia's rule by the East India Company obviously qualifies as fascist rule. Before the end of The American Revolution, Maryland and North and South Carolina had been taken over and governed by corporations.
