Controlling Corporate Voting Influence

The following discussion clip is from the Occupy Wall Street demand discussion list.

The founding father’s ( Jefferson ) addressed this [the influence of corporations on voting]. While corporations have value, to maintain the “equal vote” principle of democracy, no corporation can be allowed to influence society to a greater extent than a single person. The law must guarantee this. Furthermore, corporate actions, which influence politics must be a democratic voice of the stock holders. The actions cannot represent a decision of one or a small number of executives. Also, any crime related to the action, must be paid for by all those voting for the action. The corporate law protection cannot protect the voters.
