The government can pool all of its resources together to affect the country, but corporations can't? It'd make sense to put restrictions on government excess and "vote buying" (e.g. no pork). It makes no sense to apply them to one party.I'm as concerned about the ravages of corporations as I am about ravages of government.
The government is, actually, supposed to be second to society. Even the parts you disagree with.And U.S. corporations aren't supposed to be more powerful than the government.
And people rely on associations of all kinds. They rely on the people partaking in them to provide cheaper services, faster. They rely on them to better represent their opinions. You ever get a job from a poor man?
