I see, and when was the last time that Mr. Monsanto or Mr. Microsoft
voted at the polls. If you are willing to let your vote be bought, don't
blame it on the corporations. I always vote my conscious.

No, you misunderstand. I said you pass laws that make it in the
corporations financial interest to do what you want. For example, when
the governement wants to increase the population, you offer a marriage
and child exemption. Not really too hard to understand.

And you blame the corporations for being money hungry and trying to get
ahead. Must be nice to operate under a double standard.
