Stop painting me with a braod brush. I am opposed to corporations having the right to give unlimited political contributions.
Why ? Corporations are a VOLUNTARY association of people. Why SHOULDN'T THEY have First Amendment Rights ?! And only a tiny minority of corporations in teh U.S. gross more tahn $10 million a year. Many corporations are mom-and-pop musiness or family businesses.

My father founded and owned 3 corporations, and owned them all at the same time. None ever grossed more than $5 million a year. And his gross income was never more than $100,000 a year. And that's fairly typical of small family businesses. Are you saying that the stockholdres of those companies, i.e. my family, should not have been allowed to spend whatever we want to put up campaign sings on our property or buy radio ads supporting a candidate or an issue ?

If you do say that's wrong, YOU are wrong, because SCOTUS says you're wrong. And if you don't support the First Amendment, YOU are UNAMERICAN.

And please point all out the "exceptions" in the First Amendment where it says it doesn't apply to corporations.

FYI.... corporations are NOT people. They are a business entity. If corporations are people, why are the individual members exempt from liability?
Corporations ARE people. So says SCOTUS. IF you don't like that, then take it up with SCOTUS. But we are a nation of LAWS. And that IS the LAW. So you'll have to live with that.

Did you forget your medication again today? You can't tell the difference between hyperbole and fact.
While we are on the subject of hyperbole, you are certainly no stranger to utilizing it yourself. That incident I quoted actually happened, otherwise there would have been no need for a court ruling.

Why do the extremists in California persist in trying to eliminate all traces of Christianity form the schools and allow teaching of elements of the Koran in the name of political correctness. You ought to go to a Muslim country and see how tolerant they are with homosexuality. What you face in the USA from Christians is like a walk in the park compared to what they do to gays in Islamic countries. Do I also have to explain to you how many Arabs feel about Jews in general? After all, you claim to be a Jewish convert.

Well when you have people like Democrat Pelosi calling for doing away with the Firts Amendment, I think that means they ARE on a different planet.

And "Democratic Party" is the BIGGEST misnomer in history. They tolerate NO DISSENT !

Bullshit and lies.

News flash: this ain't a Muslim country, fuckwad, so spare me your juvenile attempts at soft peddling the heinous, anti-American "christians ain't so bad compared to Muslims" horseshit. That's an argument worthy of a third grader.

Gee..... I'm SO glad I have you to inform me that many arabs hate Jews. I would have never guessed. I'll alert the media.

I am well aware of the Citizens United decision by SCOTUS. Taking up my complaint with them is pointless. What is needed is an Amendment to strip rights from corporations. Of course they will never allow that to happen. So you can be thankful for the best government corporations can buy. So much for "of the people, by the people, and for the people."

Agreed. It seems like the tighty-whitey-righties think our national slogan should be "America: We're Not Quite as Bad as The Other Guys!"

The U.S. Constitution does NOT say "of the people, by the people, and for the people."

And when the U.S. Constitution first went into effect, and the first POTUS election was held, only about 6% of the population voted. And when George Washington was elected, and during his entire term in office, New York was the capital of the U.S. And during that first POTUS election, which George Washington won, partly because he ran unopposed, NOT A SINGLE NEW YORKER was able to vote.

Amending something is NOT "doing away with" it, especially in this instance.
