A message From Public Citizen:
" We must be heroes.
Corporate greed has infected every aspect of our lives.
Corporations are taking over our elections.
Emboldened by the Supreme Court’s dumbfounding Citizens United ruling, corporations are buying off politicians left and right. I really don’t know how we can expect democracy to survive if we allow dollars to trump votes.
Corporations are taking over the media.
Mainstream newspapers, radio stations and television networks are giving up on investigating corporate wrongdoing and, too often, devolving to be little more than plasterers of pro-corporate propaganda. The infamous billionaire Koch Brothers — who have spent hundreds of millions meddling with elections and who don’t believe in climate science — are now trying to buy venerable papers like the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune.
Corporations are taking over national sovereignty.
Not content merely with record profits in the United States, corporations like Apple, Pfizer and Citgroup are offshoring profits to avoid their fair share of taxes while simultaneously backing absurd multinational “trade” pacts that pit countries against each other in a race to the bottom for food and product safety, labor standards, and environmental protections.
And we need to fight back with all the strength and passion we can summon. This isn’t just about safeguarding consumers from unsafe products or corporate rip-offs. This isn’t just about advancing progressive ideals like fairness, justice and the American Dream.
This is about standing up — together — to save our country, our fellow citizens spanning the globe, our planet itself from the contagion of corporate power. "
