Mitt Romney spilled the beans yesterday, giving away the top GOP secret. As hecklers shouted that corporations should pay higher taxes, Romney said, “Corporations are people, my friend.”
The jeannie is uncorked. The most-sacred Republican secret slipped out and it was caught on camera. The jig is up!
The question that remains to be answered, however, is whether the American voter finally understands that there is a very clear difference between the missions of the two major political parties. If they, for some unknown reason, had not yet figured out the difference before Thursday, then surely it has become obvious to them thanks to Romney’s blunder.
Yet, with the yet-to-be spent hundreds of millions of dollars of corporate advertising, who can predict if the truth will prevail? After all, the American electorate lately has been thoroughly duped into believing lots of idiotic stuff and the Tea Party folks seem to be the most gullible of all. Like the premise of the book, What’s the Matter with Kansas, Tea Party dimwits cheer and hoot as corporations rob and loot their bank accounts and 401K’s. Sadly, “we’re not only in Kansas any more.”
Yes, corporations are people, Mitt, and like real people, they can be arrested, tried and sent to prison for a really long time. Or will the SCOTUS give them a ‘get out of jail free’ card?
