      If corporations are people, and Republicans are against welfare, then corporations should not be getting any handouts from the government.  bear on tap

    Mitt Romney buy and selling corporations could be argued as slavery. Or when he chopped them up and sold them piece by piece can be argued as murder and organ harvesting. The very idea that corporations are people open up so many ridiculous arguments. Can corporations vote? Hold office? Adopt children? If corporations are people and have the rights as people then where exactly do those rights stop?

    I hope you'll consider watching my new video, "The Welfare Recipient." It's about racism, welfare, Jackie Robinson, Colin Kaepernick, Donald Trump. You will either love this video or hate it. Please leave your feedback either on here or in the comments! youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=Rp34ctVIQtU

    Unfortunately the US is becoming the most corrupt nation in the First World. With entrenched corporate interests giving legalized bribes in return for favorable legislation, plutocracy and graft go hand-in-hand. Replacing this system with a progressive one will be a long, uphill battle. But it's not impossible. FDR proved that in the 1930s.

    Among other things, we need to:

    - Get rid of Citizen's United.

    - End corporate personhood.

    - Institute a short campaign season. Maybe two months.

    - Bring about public campaign finance. End large contributions (bribes) by big money interests.

    - Limit congressional access of lobbyists to no more than an ordinary citizen. Votes should determine law, not money.

    - Term limits. Including 18 years maximum for Supreme Court judges.

    - Terminate the antiquated Electoral College.

    - Add your own

    I would add mail in paper ballots for everyone plus early voting. And automatic voter registration for everyone turning 18.

    When the public votes in large numbers, Democrats win. Our biggest enemy is apathy, but voter suppression as we have just witnessed in Georgia must be stopped.

    All of the measures you suggest are pro-Democratic. And as such, they harm Trump's chances of stealing the election; So he's dead-against them.

    If the electorate participated in significantly larger numbers, Republicans would rarely win.

    As long as the "billionaires" get presents from "their" elected leader, forget the "elections"; they become an farce and get manipulated all the way, ask Georgia and Wisconsin. Paper "mail in" ballots would only work if you get an "confirmation" of receipt and if it is "processed" the proper way. The "mailman" may be also be "paid" to destroy the "ballots" if these come out of an "Dem's neighborhood . Corruption is here to stay, as long as their is an corrupt Republican party. Amen
