I have no doubt we have to eradicate Citizens United.

The preamble of the Constitution clearly states that this is a government of. by, and for the people, as in the citizens of this country. The latter of which is defined by our own 14th Amendment as being any person born or naturalized in the United States or its territories. A corporation, which is an entity comprised of persons but not a living and breathing person on its own, can be neither born nor naturalized.


Therefore, if we are to alter the meaning of words to include something that is neither born, nor living, nor breathing as being a person, then corporations should be subject to the same laws as actual living and breathing persons. This means that they should be subject to individual tax rates and should be fined heavily when they pollute just as individuals are when the litter or pollute. Furthermore, just as with individuals, corporations should be imprisoned for using slave labor in their factories and other places of production of goods and service, as owning slaves in illegal as per the 13th Amendment. Moreover, if a corporation, via their exploitative and unethical business practices cause the death of an actual living and breathing human, then the corporation (meaning all individuals who comprise its ruling body) must be tried and, if proven guilty, convicted and incarcerated for manslaughter or murder depending upon the circumstances of the crime.


However, since corporations cannot be and are not subject to the same laws and expectations of actual living and breathing people, then they are not, in reality, people and thus cannot be treated or defined as such. In conclusion, corporate personhood must be repealed.


Sincerely,

Karen Duld

Either corporations need to bear the full burden of being a human (ie. going to jail for breaking the law, etc) or they need to be declassified as such, no more of this reap the benefits, without any of the costs bullshit.

Markets: one dollar = one vote. Democracy: one person = one vote. There is a BIG difference.
