The Court, for all intent and purposes, obliterated "We the people." It will be no more.
The implications could not be clearer; it is the corporation that reigns in America. We need no longer wonder if our office holders are beholden to the corporate interests that bankroll their campaigns. The Court made it official.
We need no longer wonder if the decisions "our" elected representatives make "seem" to go to the benefit of their corporate sponsors rather than to the interests of the people.
Lest we forget, there was a time when slavery and later segregation was legal. On Thursday, the Court anointed the "Corporation" as the entity ruling over the country.
I have written elsewhere,* "We the people have not been vigilant in defending our liberty." If "We the People" do not rise up and decry this abominable decision by the Court and demand redress, we will be enablers to the complete corporate dominance over our lives, ceding away what liberty we have left. That is what is at stake. For it is as if the Court said, "Of, by and for the people" no longer exists. From here on it is to be, "Of, by and for the corporation" that applies.
Thursday will be our day of infamy if "We the People" remain passive bystanders in the face of the tyranny the court decreed with its decision to open the floodgates of corporate largesse to exercise their ultimate dominance and control of this country.
We must restore Lincolns "government of the people, by the people and for the people."
