    Amendment XXVIII

    Section 1. The sovereign right of the people to govern being essential to a free democracy, the First Amendment shall not be construed to limit the authority of Congress and the States to define, regulate, and restrict the spending and other activity of any corporation, limited liability entity, or other corporate entity created by state or federal law or the law of another nation.

    Section 2. Nothing contained in this Article shall be construed to abridge the freedom of the press.

    Basically we are going to write an amendment that cuts into the first amendment? And free democracy...WTF? Isn't disallowing anyone from participating in the political process for whatever reason violate a 'free democracy'.

    Even NAMBLA has the right to express their views...

    You seriously want to try to pass an amendment that will limit free speech? Good luck. But Im going to be opposed to you.

    Let me try this one more time. The CEO of IBM, its employees and its shareholders will not have any of their rights infringed upon. But IBM would have no rights because it is not human. So, the CEO would not be able to dip into IBM's corporate checkbook and pay directly for political ads. That would take us back to where we were before this cockeyed decision by the SCOTUS. BTW, you used the word 'anyone'. A corporation isn't 'anyone'. It's a thing. So, you see, noone would be denied participation in the political process.

    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."


    This would be completely in line with the constitution.
