How do corporations get undue power?

That's the question that is absent from many of the responses here. It is the corporations collusion with the state that creates power and influence not earned from the desire for their products. A corporation is no more inherently evil than a gun, car or knife.

"Corporatism" is not the same as a corporation that gains success through competing in the open market sans state granted monopoly or privilege. This is an important distinction that bears noting.

P.S. I respect Mr. Nader greatly, and he and the liberty crowd share opinions on a few common and large battles, but I would not want him in the white house.
