I want to know why most if not all of the top officers at Enron, Worldcom, and the rest are not in jail. They are nothing more than criminals. They should be treated as such. Prehaps if a few CEO’s ended up in jail for looting the companies they were trusted with running, maybe the rest of them would smarten up. However, this will not happen, as the Bush Administration and the Republicans in general are in the pockets of big business.
This reinforces something that I have thought for a while. Corporations are not people, they cannot vote, and they should not be able to make campaign contributions. America’s political system is in vast need of reform on this point.
