I am not so much worried about apple alone.
Political speech is “indispensable to decision making in a democracy, and this is no less true because the speech comes from a corporation.”
CITIZENS UNITED v. FEDERAL ELECTION COMMISSION
Unlimited spending from corporations, unions, and the likes. What a political quagmire this will put all of the die hard politicos into.
"I LOVE DORITOS, BUT THEY ARE NOT SUPPORTING MY CANDIDATE!"
I have to ask, if a die hard republican decides to purchase a product that supports a democrat; does that make them a hypocrite, and vice versa? Essentially each and every American consumer is indirectly being put into campaign funding game. But this is why I check NOOOOOOOOOOO on my tax returns, I do not want to support the presidential campaign fund.
What will the packaging look like? Will they put donkeys and elephants on my favorite little debbie snacks? When I go buy a box of condoms, will there be an old crusty republican on the cover, giving me the thumbs up with a balloon above him saying, "DO NOT GO WITH DEMOCRAT, THEY TALK A BIG GAME THEN BREAK WHEN YOU NEED IT TO WORK THE MOST!, VOTE FOR ME."
ooooooh bittersweet irony, you are the salami and cheese to my saltine cracker.
So I suppose 2010 is a beginning. Politicians will be dressed up like nascar drivers littered with patches from their sponsors. When they get tired in a debate they will snort their favorite energy drink.
BRAWNDO, BITCHES! It has electrolytes!
Fuck it, I am going to challenge the law that says you have to be 35 to be president. I will have Johnson and Johnson sponsor me. I will promise a crushing victory via their soft and cuddley no ouch tissue. I will be the peroxide in the eyes of those that oppose me. I will weave dreams about clearer, more hydrated eyes in the minds of stoners. I will put a first aid kit in every home, complete with colorful looking pills.
If you cats want to influence an election, instead of hitting the streets just email these wall street stalkers, they are the ones that will influence the elections from here on out.
P.S. Dear Scott Brown,
Thank you for whoring your daughters out on national television. You make the thrill ride of politics more and more exciting. Government officials more concerned with getting their daughters laid..... (qait, that is kind of rad.) than the crumbling economy. FUCK THE DEPRESSION OUT. RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.
