I support a constitutional amendment to abolish “corporate personhood”.
The freakish absurdity of Citizens United and the Hobby Lobby cases should alarm anyone with a passing understanding of the U.S. constitution. The Republican appointed justices on the Supreme Court are plain political operatives, with no pretense of constitutional order.
The equating of free speech with the unlimited campaign spending further poisons the national political conversation. The U.S. will transition to an explicit oligarchy soon if we do not restore a sensible interpretation of our constitution.
I also note that this should not be a partisan issue. The overreach of the present court should offend genuine conservatives as much as it does me.
