When all is said and done, corporations such as Ben and Jerry's and whatever things George Soros owns are as efficient wielders of power as, say, the American People. Better really, because there are fewer of them and it's easier to count their votes. Look at your corporations as electoral voters. You go to work for a company, and the company represents your interests as it sees fit. If you don't like it, go work for another company. It's just like if you don't like your state representatives, move to another state.
Obviously there are less liberal-leaning corporations than conservative, but as the dynamic changes towards a more corpo-centric control, that will change too. Because people run corporations.
Why should governing be left to the people any more? They don't know what the hell they're doing. Let politics be handled by entities smart enough to raise the big cash needed to do the real work.
Though politicians usually won't come out and say all this stuff, it's clearly where they want it to be going. I suppose it's not exactly what the founding fathers were aiming for (they were pretty clear about individuals having rights), well, they wouldn't have been able to see ATT coming from where they were.
