Republican Can't Identify American Corporations Anymore

"I'm telling you, I don’t even know what an American corporation is anymore, frankly. For the most part, these multinational corporations have absolutely no loyalty to a particular country. They have a loyalty to the bottom line, and they couldn’t care less about what happens in the United States. They are looking at their profit margins. I think it’s getting more and more difficult to actually identify an American, quote, corporation."


From an interview conducted by Tavis Smiley with Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo From the Tavis Smiley Show via ConcordiaDis via Five Before Chaos

An interesting fellow, Tancredo's campaign contributions reflect his apparent unhappiness with so-called American corporations. He receives very little in the way of corporate money. An odd Republican, indeed. But don't get too excited, his positions on most other Republican issues are as right-wing as they get.

While I agree with Tancredo's statements on corporations it is about the only thing I ever agreed with him om. It is not surprising he is not getting many corporate contibutions. He is a bona-fide nut case with delusions of grandeur!

Which wouldn't be such a problem if we didn't keep giving them rights as if they were actually defined within the Constitution.

The government is the only weapon we have against corporations. It is the only thing that can protect the average American from being stomped on. Unfortunately, David has not figured out that he needs to slay Goliath, who just so happens to be doing whatever he pleases.
