Should a corporation have the same rights as a person?

Home More advice Politics & Law

A Supreme Court ruling last week struck down campaign finance laws designed to protect the integrity of our election process. In this ruling the conservative majority on the court basically said that the free speech rights of a corporation are no different than those of an individual. It allows corporations, with their unlimited warchests, to spend what ever they want on political campaigns. Does anyone else think that this is an extremely dangerous ruling by the Supreme Court, and basically makes corporate puppets out of our politicians? Who could possibly get elected now without the support of corporations, and what will they need to promise them for that support?

They have just made political corruption legal!
