People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
My main issue is the same one that is in Canadian law, the law that says corporations are persons and behave as people within the legal system. I think this is the biggest mistake ever made. It places the rights of groups of people over the rights of the individual, and in the case of corporate giants, it gives them the power of entire States due to their huge finances.
This was such a terrible ruling. It's nice to see both liberals and conservatives uniting against this. Our government is corrupt enough (both parties), we don't need big business and unions buying special legislation via campaign donations.
So, those who oppose the new ruling won't be taking any of the new money when it gets offered to them?

Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
They are taxed because they are businesses, not because they are individuals, yet in the political landscape they are treated as individuals. This needs to change.
You get taxed because you make income. I don't see how that equates to having the right to make huge campaign donations to sway political forces.
