You are necessarily dismissing the fact that the First Amendment explicitly forbids Congress from legislating any acts that would abridge the freedom
of speech and that Congress did precisely this with their Bipartisan Finance Reform Act, and that the Supreme Court struck that portion that did
abridge speech as unconstitutional. You have to ignore all of that in order to come to the conclusion that it is just nonsense that the Supreme
Courts decision was a victory for everyone.
Further, given the fact that I had in my original post made clear the fact - and truth - that it was Congress with their UCC definitions that defined
corporations as a person, not the Supreme Court, and that I suggested that if people really wanted to reign in corporations that it begins with
dealing with Congress not the Supreme Court, you clearly ignored that and only took a snippet of what I said in order to make it appear as if I am
equating corporations with people. Be emotional all you want about this problem, but being ignorant about the root of the problem, and insisting on
remaining ignorant doesn't help any one of us.
