GUEST: David Cobb, American political activist, former Green Party presidential candidate and co-founder of Move to Amend, talks about the national campaign to restore Constitutional rights to the people rather than the corporations.
David is very persuasive. Not only is he a forceful speaker, but he has history on his side. The problem of corporate rule can be seen back in the 1890's, a festering cancer that has just gotten worse.
A big part of the problem is that both parties support corporate rule, mainly because they have long ago sold out for the millions in campaign contributions to be had as part of the deal. "End Citizens United" is a good example of how corporations rule us through deception. You think you are working for change, but somehow it never really happens.
Obama ran on the slogan "99% spring" because he is a master at public relations, not because he believed in a people's rebellion. In fact, he had just crippled the Occupy Movement with heavy handed police tactics. But Obama does what modern Democrats do best: talk about progressive reforms before each election, and then sell out the people once in office. It worked for both Clinton and Obama, two of the most shameful grifters we have had in the White House. Maybe it will work with Bernie. Yes, he said many of the right things. The bait and switch comes with Hillary, the corporate candidate voted in as president. Fool me twice, shame on us all.
