    Somebody made alot of money.
    Citizen United is a bad ruling. I hope our legislators will write the legislation needed to make people people, and corporations, not people.

    Sorry, you’re almost always one of the few well-informed and well-reasoned commenters, but the Supreme Court found that the US Constitution has a clause that makes corporations people, and our legislators cannot pass any laws that so clearly violate the US Constitution.


    (I’m not a Constitutional lawyer, so I’m not sure which article so clearly states that corporations are people, but the Supreme Court found it, and no law can be passed against it without an amendment either to the Constitution or to the Supreme Court.)

    Spent fifteen minutes looking for the words protecting Citizen’s United from changes to the law and/or constitution. I’ll look more later if it comes up. Recently, SCOTUS found that union workers who did not want their dues used to elect those not supported by the individual union member had the right to prevent their contribution to be so used. I find Corporations, particularly multinationals, to be dangerous to our national security. There have been several CEOs caught on tape or emails warning employees to vote for Mr. Romney or their jobs/benefits might be effected. I heard another person say a republican boss ordered his employees, some of whom were democrats, to circulate some election materials.
    This is an improper abuse of power and if a Democrat CEO was found to be making such demands of his republican employees, I believe Fox and ‘friends’ would be loud in their protests.
    There are republicans seeking a personhood clause to protect the unborn. Perhaps we need a personhood amendment to define what a person actually is.
    Thank you for your kind reply. If you find that loophole protecting Citizen’s United I would love to hear of it.
    Respectfully,

    Corporations wouldn’t be pouring millions into attack ads if they didn’t work, and attack ads wouldn’t work if people weren’t eager to have their minds made up for them.
    The fault, dear Brutus, is not in the dollar signs, but in ourselves….

    Should that be on people that did not vote.

    Teachers are often forced to stump for politicians they do not agree with because if they don’t the union will label them trouble makers. I know this to be true from personal experience. And which candidates to you suppose the teachers’ unions are supporting?

    Yes, Harleyquinn, your sentiments are felt all over the country. Now that you’ve stated them so eloquently, perhaps you can enroll in the remedial English course you so desperately need.

    When Texas executes one, “corporations” will be “persons”. Of course, how many corporations DID Mitt and Bain Capital “execute”??

    Well, how many times will they spend a billion dollars for nothing before they give up ?

    @Archimedes

    It would seem to me that under the SCOTUS ruling I referenced, teachers should be able to refuse to “volunteer” for causes with which they disagree. It would be hypocritical to want employees to be free of employer political pressure and not want the same for union members. I know two teachers voting for Mr. Romney, but I know most unions favor Democrats.

    So only labor unions and George Soros should have a say, eh?
