A victory for corporations; a blow to individual freedoms

The High Court seems to be consistent in defining corporations as individuals in their rulings against real people and allowing corporations to influence politics with unlimited cash donations, unfiltered, half-truthed and often downright false advertising. This decision doesn’t give power and individual freedoms back to the people, it provides an avenue of control by corporations over the people. I say this not as a conservative or liberal, but realizing that conservative and liberal corporations certainly will take advantage of the ruling.

  1. Now Charles,

    Why shouldn’t Corporations get them even though that was not the issue or the reason for the Supreme courts ruling; you might look up the First Amendment. Obama gave special treatment and exceptions to the Unions, different states for their vote, the auto makers, AARP, congress and their employees! Is your memory that short, all unconstitutional by the way, he does not get to rewrite the laws with out congressional approval and in this case it is unconstitutional! Obama has now been overturned by 13 Supreme Court cases, might give a sound person reason to question his ability to lead? It definitely questions his knowledge of the constitution; his sidestepping the constitution he swore to uphold, claimed to have been a scholar of , and the silliest claim that he was a Constitutional Professor – what a joke, no record of him teaching anywhere…. so goes Pinocchio or maybe we should say Terry Frazee?

    I would say the Supreme Court is trying to rain this lunatic in. Now that it is evident to almost all, that he is a liar, look for a lot more of the same.

    Looks like Seattle was a good trip…
