The corporations don't have to lobby the government anymore. They are the government.
Hightower quotes
There's nothing in the middle of the road but a yellow stripe and dead armadillos.
If you do not speak up when it matters, when would it matter that you speak? The opposite of courage is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow.

Hightower Jim quotes
Populism is at its essence [...] just determined focus on helping people be able to get out of the iron grip of the corporate power that is overwhelming our economy, our environment, energy, the media, government. [...] One big difference between real populism and what the Tea Party thing is, is that real populists understand that government has become a subsidiary of corporations. So you can't say, let's get rid of government. You need to be saying let's take over government.
Hightower Jim
The opposite for courage is not cowardice, it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow.
Jim Hightower quotes
Here come the Democrats, again, you know, just weaker than Canadian hot sauce. You know? Offering a little reform.
