Corporations over the People...AGAIN!!!

Do you believe this!!! Supreme Court reverses camapign finance law. This decision opens the door for businesses and unions to spend money influencing elections effectively overturns a state law banning such spending. What are these people thinking. They operate under the false belief that a corporation is a person with the same rights as a person.

By a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court on Thursday rolled back restrictions on corporate spending on federal campaigns. The decision could unleash a torrent of corporate-funded attack ads in upcoming elections.

"Because speech is an essential mechanism of democracy -- it is the means to hold officials accountable to the people -- political speech must prevail against laws that would suppress it by design or inadvertence," wrote Justice Anthony Kennedy for the majority.

In his dissent, Justice John Paul Stevens accused the majority of judicial activism and attacked the use of corporate personhood in the case: "The conceit that corporations must be treated identically to natural persons in the political sphere is not only inaccurate but also inadequate to justify the Court's disposition of this case."

A corporation is NOT a person! It has no soul and its interests are purely financial...profit and stock price...with no regard for how their actions effect actual real people. This is a disgrace and the Supreme Court should be ashamed. We should be ashamed that our country is being taken over by corporate interests. Coproarte pigs strike again!!!
