Citizens United vs FEC

Citizens United vs FEC

(8:51) Mitt Romney said corporations are people too (youtube.com/watch?v=E2h8ujX6T0A). But are they? This is the story of the rise of corporations and why, although consisting of people, corporations cannot be described as people. Democracy is rule by the people, not the corporation.

Whoops! Let's get this straight: if that proposed amendment really means what it claims, then nearly every single newspaper, radio station or television station would no longer have freedom of speech. What happens to our [me grinds the word out through clenched teeth] "democracy" then?

Latest comment: While I am not sure about amending the US constitution or public financing of campaigns, this is the most cogent description of an inherent problem in US government/capitalism that I have seen in a long time. Corporations are not bad, they have just gone too far in chasing profit and are not held accountable for externalities or breaches of morality. Corporate profit-chasing (greed) is supposed to benefit society, not shape government or destroy society.
