We know that a handful of rightwing corporate moguls and gazillionaires, like the Koch brothers, are funding all kinds of phony front groups created for specific and often single campaigns against Democratic candidates in various Senate and Congressional races this election season.
That the Supreme Court ruling that corporate money is equal to free speech and corporations to persons has fueled the growth of these focused attacks on Democrats, and we also know that funding from Wall Street firms is pouring into these rightwing Republican campaigns while those who identify as Democrats in the upper echelons of Wall Street are sitting on their money this year to punish Obama and the Dems in Congress for the Wall Street regulations they managed to pass, as limited as they were in terms of control of Wall Street.
And we also know that officially the recession ended last year and that corporate profits are higher than ever, yet the job market, though improving, is still hurting.
So there's an idea going around that says that corporations are deliberately not adding jobs before the election to keep the job rate artificially low in order to benefit Republicans vs. Democrats. It wouldn't be the first time corporate interests hurt the common good in order to benefit their bottom line and promote political decisions that put corporations first.
The sad thing is that so many working people think these same corporate controlled rightwingers are pushing policies that will benefit them more than Democratic policies, and as always the media doesn't do its job of in depth investigating and analyses but just offers "both sides" on the issues with watered down commentary or avoids the subject all together, understandably, since the media is corporate controlled as well.
What we need is a revolt against all and any corporate entities that put their own short term profits above the common welfare. But in order to bring that about, the media would have to be exposed as controlled by almost exclusively Republican-siding if not outright rightwing corporate interests, and that's a conundrum since those interests control most of the media!
