This is Your Country

This is Your Country

Do you get the feeling that we’re losing control of our country? If you paid attention to the recent Supreme Court decisions, you know that they have given corporations the rights of We the People. How twisted! Corporation personhood.

We are supposed to have three equal branches of government, but the Supreme court has decided all by themselves that it doesn’t matter what Congress wants or what the people want or even what the constitution says. They have decided that Corporations should have the same rights as you and me.

Only the worst part is they have said that money is the same a free speech and corporations can spend as much as they want to influence elections.

If corporations can spend unlimited money, then the little amount you and I invest in our representatives will be insignificant compared to the billions of dollars at the disposal of an entire industry.

How did things get so bad? How do we get it back?

The only way to solve this is to remove the personhood of corporations. We need a constitutional amendment saying that businesses are not people. How stupid is that? Why should we need such a silly clarification in our constitution? Everyone knows a business is not a person and our founding fathers didn’t make this country for We the Corporations.

But, alas, the amendment is the only way to clean up years and years of Supreme Court activism. Check out the many organizations that are working to clean up this mess. Check out Move to Amend.
