You're right to a point. But where does the fault lie? One of three people/groups.
-The company. But who wouldn't be tempted in their shoes for the almighty dollar to try to get laws passed, wages lowered, etc do you can have more and more $. Not saying its right- but I understand the temptation.
-Politicians. Might go in with the best of intentions, but they need money to compete in the elections. Where does that money come from? Companies. So who do the bills favor? The media on the left and right will love to argue that "we the people" elected them to their positions. But we know that's not true. Without us, could they be elected? Of course not. But they couldn't be elected without the corporate contributions either. That won't change because guess who makes the law?
-The consumer. We buy the products. They get rich. We support them.
I've always been right leaning, but as I get more educated, read more, watch more documentaries and learn more facts- I still hold true to my libertarian roots but also take more personal accountability. Americans problem is they complain about corporations while driving their giant SUV, eating a big Mac, and wearing brand new jeans they get every season.
