Letters to the editor: Let's unite to change Citizens United ruling

7:11 PM, Apr. 4, 2014  |  Comments

It has been sometime since the United States Supreme Court has decided on Citizens United. Their decision based mainly on the fact that corporations are people. Since that time corporations have spent billions of dollars trying to influence our political process and the way our democracy work. All mainly done to benefit those same corporations.

I would like to ask the Supreme Court several questions about that decision. How many corporations in that same period of time have shed blood, lost an arm or leg or had half of their face blown away defending our political process and our democracy?

I await their answer but of course we already know it don't we. The answer is none.

Because a corporation is not a person it is nothing more than a stack of papers, a group of legal documents written by a group of very smart lawyers with articles of incorporation stated on them. A corporation is primarily designed to do two things. One defer taxes and two in case of failure protect personal assets. Now mind you there is nothing wrong with either of those but those things do not make a corporation a person.

Now is the time for people the real people the ones who live, breath, and die to tell the United States Supreme Court to reverse this bad decision. Now is the time for the real people to take back out political process and our democracy.

Now is the times to stop the corporate money from influencing our politics and our future.
