Something that doesn't really need to be greedy, but in reality, is.

CEOs in America make thousands of times more than their employees. In Britain, they only make about six times as much.

See that CD you just bought for $15? It cost about 1 cent to make it. How much does the artist get? About 50 cents or less per CD. How much goes into the laborers that made the CD? Well, seeing that it was either made by machines or minimum-wage workers (to assemble the case), the electricity/labor cost per CD is probably 5-10 cents. Let's round up and say it's a dollar total. So where's the rest go? Into the corporation.

The Rock Against Bush CD cost $7 (if you buy it directly from the producer). That's less than half the price of a typical CD. That shows that it is possible to have cheap CDs.

An ideal corporation always puts its employees before its executive office and always puts its consumers before its profit. But of course, none of this happens. We see people get laid off so that the exectuive's stock can go up a half of a point. We see goods that cost a dollar to make being sold for twenty. We see them exploiting the children of third-world countries.

Don't give me crap about how they want the job. It's exploiting, regardless of whether they want it or not. Since when do Americans deserve more rights than Africans or Chinese?

Oh, and corporations basically have the government and media in its pocket. Corporations buy the presidency through donations. Enron donated $114,752 to the Republicans and $102,050 to the Democrats. Then, when they're elected, the do whatever the corporation wants. Oh, and they control the media too. Microsoft controls NBC, Fox controls Fox news, etc. Liberal media my ass. It's not a liberal media, it's not a conservative media. It's a profiteer media. Meaning, anything that will get them a profit, they will report.
Damn, I hate those money-mongering corporations. It's a pity no one can do jack shit about them though.

A man who works for the people, not the corporations or special interest groups. Devoted to end corporate welfare, corporate crime, and strengthen environmental regulations. Also dedicated to preserve our rights.
Democrats and Republicans are sellouts to the corporations. Unlike Bush and Kerry, Nader and candidates like Badnarik care about you. They're running to improve your lives, not to improve theirs.

An alternate spelling of all right.

Although sometimes considered improper English, it is a completely logical contraction. The words altogether and already are similar contractions that are widely accepted.
Alright isn't a word for retards. It'll be a real English word in dictionaries a few years down the road.

People that criticize the use of the word "alright" are probably guilty of scores of grammatical errors anyway, like everyone who speaks the English language.

Something that's used extensively by corporations to "own" everything.
Fact: Time Warner owns a copyright on the song "Happy Birthday" that doesn't expire until 2030.

A system where two people that represent the rich minority compete to see who can trick more people that they are actually going to do something in their interests.
Why the fuck vote? We all know whoever wins is going to be a Republican/Democrat and they're both going to tell us that they represent the working man while fucking everyone but the rich.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Something that people like Ann Coulter and other neoconservatives misrepresent. The Green and Libertarian parties both embrace the philosophy of liberalism.

Liberalism has nothing to do with economy. It is completely independent of capitalism or any other economic system. Liberalism is a strictly social philosophy.

It is the opposite of authoritarianism.
It is also NOT the opposite of conservatism.

Under liberalism, the government has little role in regulating social affairs. Under liberalism, the government exists to protect liberties, not take them away.
"Liberalism is a political current embracing several historical and present-day ideologies that claim defense of individual liberty as the purpose of government. It typically favors the right to dissent from orthodox tenets or established authorities in political or religious matters. In this respect, it is sometimes held in contrast to conservatism. Since liberalism also focuses on the ability of individuals to structure a society, it is almost always opposed to totalitarianism, and often to collectivist ideologies, particularly communism." - Wikipedia.com

The Bill of Rights is a product of liberalism.
