If Alito is a "strict" reader of the Constitution, and not an "activist"
Advertisements [?]
judge - can we count on him to repeal all the rulings that granted Corporations their 'personhood'? It wasn't in the Constitution, it was implied in several cases argued before the SCOTUS, most notably the 1886 U.S. Supreme Court case Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad Company (118 U.S. 394).

The RePugs are always chattering about doing away with these type of rulings, that the Constitution is not a 'living document' and that it needs to be read according to the way the Founding Fathers wrote it. Perhaps some cases affecting the 'citizenship' of our non-taxpaying, lobby hiring, campaign donating, law writing corporations need to come before these strict interpreters.
