When Mitt Romey said, “Corporations are people too” he was not making some goofy misspeak. He was genuinely stating the position of some of the rich who truly think that they should have more civil rights under the law because they have more money.
The number of people who work for a living greatly exceeds the number of those who inherited great wealth but those are the ones who are misleading the public dialogue to their own benefit. The Supreme Court ruling in the Citizens United case that equated money with the freedom of speech was another stepping stone in the path down which these people want to lead our country.
If you noticed that I didn’t mention two topics commonly connected to the Hobby Lobby case (health insurance and birth control) it is because those are emotionally charged topics introduced to the conversation to mislead and confuse. Don’t fall for it.
If each individual citizen seeks out the true issues behind the corporate produced headlines and rhetoric and votes in their own best interests then we have a chance to preserve the government of the people.
