Free Speech for People – Not Corporations

Free Speech for People

“On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that corporations are entitled to spend unlimited funds in our elections.  The First Amendment was never intended to protect corporations.  This cannot stand.  Sign up to protest this decision and protect our democracy!

Free speech is for people — not corporations.”

Greg Palast: “Would . . .  Chinese landlords have an interest in buying the White House for an opponent of government spending such as Gov. Palin?  Ya betcha!

Thom Hartmann: “Benito Mussolini invented a new form of government where corporations ran the government – he called it ‘fascism.‘”

    Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission: “What Roberts, Thomas, Scalia, Alito and Kennedy are guilty of is treason.” “After years of bad headlines and unflattering news reports the corporations bought the headlines and news reports. . . .” “From that moment on, anyone who talked about what was going on became a crazy unpatriotic liberal. . . . ” “Benito Mussolini created the word ‘fascism.’ He defined it as ‘the merging of the state and the corporation.’ He also said a more accurate word would be ‘corporatism.’ This was the definition in Webster’s up until 1987 when a corporation bought Webster’s and changed it to exclude any mention of corporations.” Justice Stevens’ Dissenting Opinion: “At bottom, the Court’s opinion is thus a rejection of the common sense of the American people, who have recognized a need to prevent corporations from undermining self-government since the founding, and who have fought against the distinctive corrupting potential of corporate electioneering since the days of Theodore Roosevelt.”
