We are seeing today how giant corporations have become so powerful and influential that many believe they are more powerful than even the federal government. That’s rather ironic, when you consider the government has a duty to regulate and control their activities. Thomas Jefferson warned American citizens years ago about the dangers associated with unchecked power of large corporations. Mr. Jefferson had this to say:
I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.
It’s too bad Mr. Jefferson’s warning hasn’t been sufficiently heeded by our elected leaders. Several of our Presidents have recognized the dangers he warned about, including Abraham Lincoln, but few have done anything about it. But it’s not too late to curb the undue power and influence of Corporate America and the place to start is with their lobbyists.
