28th Amendment

The Wolf-PAC Resolution does not contain specific amendment language because we truly want to hear all sides and solutions at the amendments convention.  We think the amendment should contain these core values: 

"Corporations are not people. They have none of the Constitutional rights of human beings. Corporations are not allowed to give money to any politician, directly or indirectly. No politician can raise over $100 from any person or entity. All elections must be publicly financed."

*Note: The finished legislation will be worded differently and have to account for inflation, etc. This is simply to point legislators in the right direction and make sure the final amendment accomplishes the goals we have outlined here.

Rich, I wasn’t talking about charters or even the right to be a corporation at all, I was talking about the authority to deny or remove any and all rights & protections to a natural individual based on the arbitrary judgement that he/she is acting as a member of a “corporation” instead of by his/her own individual accord. But in the best case everyone is seen as acting by his/her individual accord, making the clause redundant anyway. So there’s no point including a clause which can only ever switch between redundant and unjustifiable.

So you should address, in a clear way, the potential abuses and/or oversights, by anyone, that you wish to address, in your 28th amendment proposal itself. Of course you could specify legally recognized associations in that clause, but why would you want to allow people who aren’t acting in the capacity of any legally recognized association to commit the exact same abuses and/or oversights? Do you see what I’m getting at now?
