Yes, corporations are just like a person
No, corporations are not just like a person
What you are talking about is corruption, not democracy. Its not democracys fault that a Corp runs a ad slandering a candidate based on lies. nor is it Democracys fault that a Senator promises special things to a Corp during a closed door meeting. Democracy is not the culprit here, dispite how you try to twist my words or meaning.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller

I say that those of you who believe corporations (and for you misterman, everything in the universe) has the same rights protected by The Constitution of the United States of America as a person, I'll even go so far as to argue, a citizen, are practicing the above definition of judicial activism.Judicial activism is when a judge goes beyond the literal words of the law or Constitution and move toward making his or her own law based on his own ideas about what is right or wrong, as if he were a legislator rather than a judge.
The opposite of that is called judicial conservatism. It means sticking to the more narrow interpretation of the law or the Constitution.
The Constitution does mention People and Persons but not corporations. Therefore we should not assume that the lack of mention should mean it's intent is different than it's literal interpretation. It doesn't mention corporations as having their rights protected so we shouldn't assume corporations are meant to be so covered.
