money = votes, so if you are a rich corp, you are automagically a majority
I beg to academically differ if i may
Money != votes....at least not the peoples votes and not directly. It requires our collective consent before translating into actual votes.
Money = advertising and influence
Influence/lobbying equals politician's votes surely
Advertising equals influence over sheeple , who then do indeed vote as directed (when bothering to take time from the cud).
So money ends up influencing votes in the most egregious way. But if people were to decide that it was time to end corruption and vote the bastards out in favor of real public servants, we could technically retire a sizable portion of congress in one fell swoop. And if we collectively put emphasis on getting educated about issues, thus making informed choices on our own ballot selections rather than allowing political advertising to hold such sway, there is nothing sort of mayhem that big $ could do about it.
OK, "yeah, right,...likely." is the response to that,...but the point still holds....we collectively consent to this mess. And we should never take that failure out of the equation. You're point that they become some manor of "majority" is taken, they are certainly trumping the people's business to an ridiculous and disgusting extreme. But they are a "majority" because we allow it.
