Mitt Romney is focused on convincing Americans that his private-sector business record qualifies him to be President, which is perhaps why he accidentally called the United States of America a “company” instead of a “country” on Friday.http://thinkprogress.org/election/2012/08/31/783791/romney-calls-america-company/
While Romney has spoken extensively about running the government more efficiently, like a private business, he has never compared the entire American enterprise to an actual business enterprise. But today, at an event in Florida, Romney did just that, saying his administration will reach out to people who “want to make sure this company deals with its challenges”:
Paul Ryan and I understand how the economy works, we understand how Washington works, we will reach across the aisle and find good people who like us, want to make sure this company deals with its challenges. We’ll get America on track again.
Oops My Ass! That was no idle slip of the tongue.
That is exactly how Willard and Ryan and the Koch Brothers and the Wall Street gangsters and the rest of the 1% view America. The United States of America is their fucking private company to run as they goddamn well please - period. Fuck the democracy bullshit, and the Constitution, and the one man/one vote garbage. The bottom line is that if they want to, they will gamble with America, Inc.'s money, reputation, people and this country's destiny as they damn well please. And the reasoning, which they would only dare admit to amongst like-minded company, is because they are the majority shareholders and they own it all - they own fucking everything - and that includes you, me, our children, our grandchildren and the futures of each and every one of us. And believe you me -- they definitely want more for themselves and less for us the people -- to them, we're just the hired help.
You all better wake up and start paying attention to this shit.
