Read another one of my postings- I worded this one wrong...

The end of corporate slavery.

Which ones would they take away, other than the right to destroy your fellow
man's standard of living and, perhaps, the right to carry firearms around?

The end to international labor abuses.

It's better than destroying the planet with our coal and oil use, which will
run out in half a century anyway...

I have no beef with this one (of course, I'm a college student who relies on
public transportation, and for the three months out of the year that I do
drive, I have a car that gets 36 MPG). I think that a 10-20 cent gas tax
would be a very good idea.

Which others that I already don't think should be taken away?

It's better than dying of cancer, like I've seen several members of my
family go due to the agricultural toxins infesting the upper midwest.

Better late than never.

We're talking about trash, not economics.

We already live our lives oppressed by corporate interests... what would the
difference be?
