Well here it is, a Corporation is officially running for congress.


Until now, corporations only influenced politics with high-paid lobbyists and backroom deals. But today, thanks to an enlightened Supreme Court, corporations now have all the rights the founding fathers meant for us. It was their dream to build the best democracy money can buy.

That's why Murray Hill Incorporated is taking democracy's next step — running for Congress. Join us and build a vision for the future we can all be proud of. Vote Murray Hill Incorporated for Congress!

Now, this is probably satire more then anything else, but it is official, after the supreme court decision a corperation is running for office

You know...it actually wouldn't be a bad idea for some corps to have influence. Do things like teach the political system about cost and debt, profit margins, ineffectual processes that cost money with no return, etc.

A good point was raised...the lobbiests already buy off the politicians, would there really be that much of a difference between whats happening now and this new potential senario?

Meh...maybe SCOTUS will repeal civil rights next...that was also a controversial move in its time (Brown V US).

incidently, if Corporations = people, then what sex are they...because mergers = marriage and they can be banned from merging if they try to gay merge with one another.
