No leftover CEOs in public office

Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina look like something new, but what do they offer? We know nothing about their character except what their former colleagues tell us, but their values are surely corporate.

Our national life has been corporatized to the point that the well-being of citizens doesn’t count anymore. Only money counts. The highest use of money is making more money, while supporting the life and health of citizens is considered wasteful.

Our problem is not lack of money – the supply keeps increasing. Our problem is the encroaching meanness in American life, the lessening of support for our basic institutions: Education, libraries, firemen, policemen, medical care, pensions, postal service. The money goes elsewhere. What ails our country is not a budget deficit, it’s the slow killing of our national soul by corporate values.

We need candidates who are committed to strengthening American society, the bedrock of our country. We’re not a corporation that gets rid of anything that doesn’t make a profit. We’re a nation of people who need better than leftover CEOs in public office.
