And you are wrong about corporations not being individual people.. My parents own a small business. Therefor its a corporation.. Should they not be able to contribute what they choose and whom ? And furthermore the 2010 election outcome had nothing to do with this as in the outcome of the elections. Americans, Clear thinking ones I might add are awake and see through the bullshit that both parties are responsible for. Thats why we are voting for candidates that actually believe in limited constituional gov. Even though its going to take decades to unravel the damage both parties are responsible for.
when is the last time a corporation went to jail or was prosecuted for any wrongdoing? the penalties against human beings and corporations are different. coorporations are fined and they pay money in damages. human persons go to jail. in some cases they pay a fine, but most times they end up on probation, which corporations don't, mind you, or they go to jail. if the penalties are not applied and the same the same punnishment doled out, ie. prison, how can one say that human beings and corporations are the same?
and yes, corporations should have the same limits that they can contribute as individual human beings do.
what is fair, 100 people donating $500 each to a candidate or a small corporate board of directors donating $5 million in the name of their company? it is unbelievably unfair. money is not speech, and the entity paying that money is not a person. why is that such a difficult thing to grasp?
