    RWers are going to love this....until they realize the Democrats are raising just as much unlimited money. Just like Citizens' United -- once they realized it applied to Unions too, they didn't like it so much.

    If they pay taxes, politically speaking, they are.

    That's quite moderate of you, but it's inaccurate.

    One party has some bad actors, while the other part is built purely and entirely on a mountain of lies and corruption.

    Corporations are created by state permission (charter), they have legal requirements (paying taxes on profits for instance), but that doesn't entitle them to full rights as a citizen. They cannot vote, they cannot serve in the military, they cannot run or hold political office.

    Taxes determine personhood? That won't fly with right-to-lifers.

    No taxation without representation. They can't cast a vote beyond the population of the corporation, but they should have a voice if the corporation is taxed as an individual. Political contributions are a voice.

    If not, then the federal and state governements shouldn't be allowed to tax them.

    Again, conflating citizen with chartered entity.

    We're going nowhere with this, so I'm done.

    If you think corporations will be stopped from political donations, you're dreaming. They have, can, and will.
