    You changed the context now to the first amendment. Which there is plenty of evidence against from the dissenting opinions as well.

    Have I appealed to authority, sure I have, and it is true 4/9 have this opinion. Of course you are appealing to authority everytime you cite the 1st amendment.
    5/9 don't agree with you.

    Wow, now this is an appeal to authority. Different justices have different opinions. I mean, why was Austin allowed 19 years ago?

    Now that that is out of the way. Lets just discuss the opinions and not who did them, since it is obviously irrelevent either way.

    No, I've been arguing within the context of "corporate personhood" and whether or not the Bill of Rights applies to corporations.

    But I get it, right -- there are good corporations and bad corporations. Good corporations enjoy the protections of the Bill of Rights, while bad corporations don't.

    No, the text of the law is actually the law, so that's fact. You're appealing to the opinions of four people.

    What makes you think the bill of rights should even apply to a corporation?

    Austin was the law, and the opinions of 5 people overturned it. But why would we do that. The law is the law, thats a fact, right?

    Congress shall make no law . . .

    Look, corporations do not exist independent of people. People do not give up their rights when they form an association.

    It's really sad that you have to find a way to diminish the protections of the Bill of Rights to establish your preferred state of being.

    Austin was precedent. And it was overturned through due process. If the text of the First Amendment were similarly changed through due, prescribed process, then it would change. Nothing magic about that.

    If that is the main argument you present, then you are going to have to accept the Roe v. Wade decision. A majority of justices didn't agree with you on that.

    The Supreme court is the final arbiter of Law in The US.

    5 of the 9 Justices decided that Austin was unconstitutional.

    5 is a majority.

    The Supreme court operates on a simple majority.

    That is why Austin is no longer law....capiche?
