Corporations profiteer off public health

I understand what it is to make money through providing an honest product or service which benefits my customers.

To the Editor,

I own a small business. I understand what it is to make money through providing an honest product or service which benefits my customers.

But I refuse to allow huge, faceless, empty-souled corporations or elitist interest groups to continuously and successfully whore-out our politicians in order to gain the disproportionately advantageous position of manipulating our free enterprise system through the purchase of those politicians.

Their purpose appears to be to do anything they want when they want, in the name of still more profit.

At the same time, these obscenely huge profits are made upon the destruction of my health and quality of life, the diminishment of my privacy and personal choice to live as I wish to live free of government meddling, breathtaking government incompetence and complete corporate subservience leading to massively still greater profiteering upon what will become my shriveled, ill corpse.

The business plan of these business monoliths seems to be that for them to prosper, I and my family along with most other citizens must die slowly, horribly, expensively, cancerously and painfully.

I say no to this business plan. This business plan doesn’t work for me or those I care for.

Therefore ‘no’ to smart meters.
