Corporations are Not People! – PUBLIC PROTEST in Quad Cities, Iowa

Calling All Iowans!  Corporations are Not People! – PUBLIC PROTEST  

image By Caroline Vernon

The Corporate Reform forum of Progressive Action for the Common Good and other partner organizations invite you to attend a PUBLIC RALLY in PROTEST of the recent Supreme Court decision that money = free speech.

On President's Day, Monday, February 15th, at Noon, in front of the Federal Courthouse, 4th & Perry,  in Davenport
For More Information Call

Citizens will address, and demand justice, from our nine Supreme Court justices…

Abraham Lincoln will be there, reciting his prophetic quote about an impending future crisis that caused him to tremble for the safety of our country…

You will see the US Constitution, laying in rest, as a member of our faith community gives the eulogy and speaks to our inalienable rights as endowed by our Creator – if you listen carefully I believe you'll hear a trumpet in the distance, playing TAPS on the wind…

Will it mark the death of our constitution or the death of a political system mired in corruption?

Will our citizens recoil, overwhelmed by the weight of power corrupted, or will they organize, join forces, and magnify each others voices?
Does it not fall upon us to set things right?  Will you join me in speaking truth to power in this fight? We're all in this together – you know that to be true… you stand with me and I'll stand with you. 

So just in case you're feeling weary and tired, we really need your help to get our Supreme Court fired!   image
Oh wait.. that's not all… I'm not done yet… to right this wrong we must never forget… democracy requires vigilance and toil… if we don't pay attention, we'll be owned by big oil. 

As if that's not already the case, we now can be certain who will win the next race… it won't be Obama or even Joe Biden, it will be Exxon, Monsanto and Pfizer, I'm certain – 'cuz some Supreme Court judges say they are a person.

Now, if you agree with that assessment, with all due respect, I cannot understand, how a corporation can be equal to man. 

Does it eat? Does it breathe? Does it live? Does it love? Does it laugh? Does it Cry? Is it blessed from above? Does it recognize, or even see, the inalienable rights of humanity? 

How can they say corporations are persons when in spite of their profits, our plight only worsens.

They only care about profit & loss… and giving huge bonuses to the corporate boss. 

Do they have a mother who taught them to share, with the workers that they must entrust to their care?

Or does the corporate ladder only provide for those who are willing to tread upon others, instead of treating them as sisters and brothers? 

Do we as a culture really want to see, the end of our democracy? 

If not, I suggest we all do what we can, to reinforce the brotherhood of man.  To stand with each other against corporate might, to say “hell no, you won't win this fight!” 

And lo and behold, we'll begin to see, a rising consensus upon the land that a corporation does not equal a man.

So now, once again, I beseech you all, to push past the comfort zones we experience, and take to the streets because this is serious!

After all, if we don't do it, who will?  I shudder to think about my children's future… and that's why I know we must do all we can to ensure democracy is safeguarded again.

    Do we need a Referendum For A New Democracy?
    Are you concerned about the future of democracy? Do you feel democracy is under attack by extreme greed in countries around the world? Are you sick and tired of: living in fear, corporate greed, growing police state, government for the rich, working more but having less?
    Can we use both elections and random selection (in the way we select government officials) to rid democracy of undue influence by extreme wealth and wealth-dominated mass media campaigns?
    The world's first democracy (Athenian democracy, 600 B.C.) used both elections and random selection. Even Aristotle (the cofounder of Western thought) promoted the use random selection as the best way to protect democracy. The idea of randomly selecting (after screening) juries remains from Athenian democracy, but not randomly selecting (after screening) government officials. Why is it used only for individual justice and not also for social justice? Who wins from that? …the extremely wealthy?
    What is the best way to combine elections and random selection to protect democracy in today's world? Can we use elections as the way to screen candidates, and random selection as the way to do the final selection? Who wins from that? …the people?
