    Yet another reason to despise the corporate take-over of our government:  lack of loyalty to the US Constitution.

    The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.

    Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.
      -- Franklin D. Roosevelt
