Keith Olberman speaks out against the growing influence of corporations within our nation and electoral process.

We already live in a Corporatocracy in many ways, corporate lobbyist ensure that private companies and banks are allowed to destroy lives without prosecution. Chemical companies are allowed to poison entire towns and falsify safety reports, oil companies are allowed to ignore our safety laws and are able to get away with destroying entire coastlines, pharmaceutical companies are able to get away with experimenting with dangerous combinations of mind altering drugs on children in mental hospitals (I've personally seen this), food companies are allowed to get away with gross violations of health standards, all because they are able to buy out our government.

The future we have to look forward to is even worse than this if Corporations are allowed to remain unchecked. Corporate power is constantly expanding, often trumping the rights of the citizen, they're already taking over the internet, starting wars, and robbing us blind. Private Banks and Private Companies are getting away with murder, and the people we elect to represent us are selling out our interests for theirs.
