Pope is right-if they behave like a business than you should be treated like one too.

Same rule should apply to Labor Unions-if they behave like political party than they should be treated like one.

Following that line of thinking much of GOP should be renamed Democratic Party,large part of current Democratic Party becomes Socialist Party etc.

That should clear a lot of misunderstandings and prevent a lot of mistakes.

You can't call things like they are, you'll offend someone! /s

Liberals should rename themselves social marxists.

I often get labelled a liberal, but I'm not a social marxist.

Fiscally conservative people who hate central banks should be renamed Democrats (in line with what the Dem party founder andrew Jackson believed)

I guess I'm a Democrat then... but I'm not a fan of the existing DNC. They're basically republican-lite.

Should that apply to corporate lobbying groups too? If all lobbying groups, corporate and union are automatically political parties, than how do we donate to political campaigns? Conflating things that aren't the same isn't helping.

Why would you do that? They've become increasingly pro-plutocrat and authoritarian in the last 30 years, which seems true to their roots.

The GOP should be labeled Corporate Interests Political Party #1 and the Democrats should be labeled Corporate Interests Political Party #2. Neither give a fuck about you or anything you love.
