Mitt Romney speaks from the Des Moines Register's "Soapbox" at the Iowa State Fair August 11, 2011 in Des Moines, Iowa. (Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images) from the LA Times


"Corporations are people, my friend... of course they are. Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to the people. Where do you think it goes? Whose pockets? Whose pockets? People's pockets. Human beings my friend."  

So said Mitt Romney, quoted by the Huffington Post at the Iowa State Fair yesterday, denigrating and insulting good people everywhere when he was asked why he is attacking "entitlements" rather than looking to fairly tax and eliminate loopholes for corporations. At the same time he conjured the concept of "The People" as expounded in the Declaration of Independence, intentionally confounding this noble concept with his rich friends and cronies who actually are invested in the big corporations.

Be wary of the man who addresses you as "my friend."

What kind of "people" are corporations?

Big corporations act like people who are thousands of times more powerful than any real human being, and are totally immoral because their only interest, by law, is to make a profit by any means necessary.

A corporation is an atheist, dreamless, sleepless predator. 

It acts like a human possessed by a ferocious selfish demon.

Corporations enable small men to indulge their basest instincts with invulnerability. 

What  nice "people" are corporations!

They are conspiracies, exclusive socialist creations of the plutocrats, to mass and aggrandize their ill-gotten mostly inherited wealth.
These fictions chartered by government and protected by law have all the rights and few of the responsibilities of a human being.
They facilitate cooperation among the fortunate wealthy against the lesser human beings who toil for a living.
In a true capitalist system the rich and powerful would have to compete with each other. 
The corporations allow natural enemies to easily join forces against the people. 
They cannot die because they do not truly live. 
They cannot be jailed for their crimes.
The owners of the corporations are protected from responsibility for the wicked deeds committed by these entities which act on behalf of the power of their riches.

Supreme Court "justices" in the possession of the wealthy declared these insane entities "people" with all the rights and none of the responsibilies of real "people" during the administration of Ulysses S. Grant.

American freedom has been disappearing ever since.

Thus the wealthy corrupt the power of government to aggrandize themselves while successfully convincing the people that the government, their only means of peaceful remedy against the depradations of the rich, is the source of their suffering, rather than a tool for its respite.
