The decision of the majority of our Supreme Court concerning Corporations and their rights to influence elections within the United States is an extension of the fallacy of Corporate Personhood. Since the 1880's this false assertion has been fed and nurtured. Corporations grew as the robber barons sought more power. More cases are heard now on laws written to protect minorities in order to protect Corporation rather than actual minorities. The Boards of Directors of Corporations enjoy a limited liability for the actions of the Corporations they run. A Corporation cannot be put in prison as a real person can.

Corporations were seen as a necessary evil by our founding fathers. Their Charters were granted by States and could also easily be dissolved by those States. They could not influence elections and many were dissolved for breaking the rules. Today Corporations exist to grow and disburse profits to their shareholders. They pick our candidates and decide who we see and what we hear. They are not bound to be truthful, yet they put on a show for the public everyday as their puppets keep our money flowing into their pockets. Now the Supreme Court thinks even multinational giants should be able to spend unlimited amounts ensuring that candidates hear their free speech
