Wisconsin Representative Rick Nolan introduced House Joint Resolution 29 today, for which Move-to-Amend has been garnering grassroots support over many years. The “We the People Amendment” is a simple, clear, unequivocal statement that corporations are not “persons” and money is not “speech,” in alignment with the intent of the U. S. Constitution, which does not recognize corporate “rights,” assigning rights only to human persons. Indeed, the Constitution does not even mention corporations and the framers were very aware of the abuses that could be done by corporations, instruments then of the 1% as they are today; hence their conspicuous absence from the founding documents.
Because of the 1886 Supreme Court clerk’s decision to include the misbegotten concept of corporate “personhood” in the header of the Southern Pacific Railroad v. Santa Clara County decision, we have been subjected to 127 years of corporate abuse of our Bill of Rights, as they have claimed first, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and 14th amendment rights in order to subvert our democracy and circumvent laws passed for the protection of the rights and freedoms of the citizenry. We must reclaim our fundamental, sovereign, exclusive Constitutional rights and end corporate rule. Call your congressperson today and urge him or her to vote for the “We the People Amendment”!!
