    They can hide behind rights all they want but the bottom line is, if they aren't restricted in anyway to give as much as they want our govt will never represent us. They are bought and paid for by those corps. There is a quote out there about fascism being the merger of govt and business. Thats the truth.

    Good. Corporations are not natural people. However, Cons think otherwise.

    Actually, the law declares them people in order to collect taxes. Pesky thing is, once you open that door lawyers drive excavators through them and all sorts of pesky things happen.

    The Law and the 14th Amendment is wrong. Either we will strike accordance or disagreement over this.

    However, I implicity agree with you: our corporate tax is most ludicrous. Corporations need to pay up if they want to live in America, instead of asking (i.e. lobbying with millions of dollars to ask for favors) for subsidies.
