Our nation of laws is beginning to look more and more like a
nation of men.
These men are fashioning our government into a bizarre
religion that closely resembles the church of early Europe.
For example a rich man could approach any of the
churches Catholic or any of the many Protestant religions and
buy himself a seat or a position of importance within the church.
These days the same thing is done in the United States
for positions in government from local to state to federal.
In the early days of Europe and in the Middle Ages sins
could be paid for and salvation granted for a price. Poor people
were all condemned to hell both on earth and in the afterlife.
Here in the United States poor people are still
condemned to hell especially if they end up in court but like
their corrupt predecessors the rich can buy themselves off. Martha
Stewart stands out as a minor example. Tom Lay of Enron and Ebbers
of Worldcom (now MCI) both stand out as big examples.
Even bigger examples are entire companies that get away
with this. Even as poor people have been skewered by George Bush
who shut down the bankruptcy window large corporations like K-
Mart, Owens-Corning and others continue to rake in piles of money
and dominate their respective industries with corruption and
While bankrupt K-Mart actually went out and bought
Sears one of the world's largest retailers.
Something is wrong and it's not Social Security.
