Corporations Are Now People

Editor:

So, corporations are now people. While theses inanimate paper constructs have no brain, heart, or soul, the five ideological screwballs on our Supreme Court say that corporations henceforth have a First Amendment right to speak in any election by spending unlimited cash to elect or defeat candidates.

What is next? If corporations have the First Amendment right to support candidates, how can they be denied the become candidates? Indeed, one corporation, Murray Hill Inc., has already filed for a Maryland congressional seat. A Murray Hill executive says that his corporation simply decided to: eliminate the middleman and is urging other corporate brothers and sisters to take the political plunge.

We are saying to Walmart, AIG and Pfizer, if not you, who? If not now, when? All things might be possible in the Supreme Court corporate wonderland. What we have here is a black-robed coup against the American people’s Democratic Authority. Their names are: Sam Alito, Anthony Kennedy, John Roberts, Antonin Scala and Clarence Thomas.

The clear intention of the framers in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights speak only of people. 1. Insistence by Congress and Presidents that corporate monies have no place in our Democratic elections. 2. Laws by 22 States specifically corporate monies can and should be excluded. 3. Clearly established precedents court after court corporate monies should be excluded. 4. 234 years of belief that amendments, public financing of elections are for humans.

There are groups that are focusing on constitutional amendments, public financing of elections and other structural steps, you can find them on the Internet.
