Well, now that the SCOTUS has told us that corporations are people, it stands to reason that they have the same rights as everyone else in America. So, I guess we shouldn't be surprised to see the seats in congress filled by these people.
Following the recent Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission to allow unlimited corporate funding of federal campaigns, Murray Hill Inc. today announced it was filing to run for U.S. Congress and released its first campaign video on

“Until now,” Murray Hill Inc. said in a statement, “corporate interests had to rely on campaign contributions and influence peddling to achieve their goals in Washington. But thanks to an enlightened Supreme Court, now we can eliminate the middle-man and run for office ourselves.”

Murray Hill Inc. is believed to be the first “corporate person” to exercise its constitutional right to run for office. As Supreme Court observer Lyle Denniston wrote in his SCOTUSblog, “If anything, the decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission conferred new dignity on corporate “persons,” treating them — under the First Amendment free-speech clause — as the equal of human beings.”

Murray Hill Inc. agrees. “The strength of America,” Murray Hill Inc. says, “is in the boardrooms, country clubs and Lear jets of America’s great corporations. We’re saying to Wal-Mart, AIG and Pfizer, if not you, who? If not now, when?”

Murray Hill Inc. plans on spending “top dollar” to protect its investment. “It’s our democracy,” Murray Hill Inc. says, “We bought it, we paid for it, and we’re going to keep it.”

  1. Corporations are a "group" of people who hire thousands upon thousands of people who work for them in the United States. What benefits those corporations benefits all of the people who work for them and all of the companies who produce products, etc for them.

    All United States corporations have the right to have their voice heard constitutionally through lobbiests. Today they are the puppet masters behind the politicians. They are who lines their pockets. They are their gravy train.

    Allowing them to spend money on campaign ads only shows their faces as they have to tell who they are to run a campaign ad. They ALREADY spend all of the dollars needed to completely control this country.

    I think something we can all agree upon is having elections paid for by the people and disallowing ALL political action committee contributions and lobbyist perks that are given.

  2. Eat shit you ugly dog.
