It's Official: A Corporation is running for Congress!


http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread539346/pg1

Following the recent Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC that allows unlimited corporate funding of federal political campaigns, Murray Hill, Inc. of Maryland today announced it was filing to run as a political candidate - - for U.S. Congress. Thanks to an enlightened majority on the Supreme Court, corporations themselves now have all the same Constitutional rights the Founding Fathers intended for human beings. That's why Murray Hill Inc. is taking progressive democracy's next step by running for US Congress.

This is a vision of the future we can all be proud of. Murray Hill Inc. is believed to be America's first corporate person to exercise the United States Constitutional right to run for federal public office. And as a corporation, Murray Hill, Inc. is self-funding. As Murray Hill, Inc. says of our American democracy, "We bought it. We paid for it*. And we're going to keep it.

5. Murray Hill's designated human, Eric Hensal, says
"We want to get in on the ground floor of the democracy market before the whole store is bought by China."

7. Good, if this moves Congress to do something to reverse this nonsense.
Such as a constitutional amendment stating what a corporation is and that it is NOT a person.

8. So what would be hilarious
would be for a bunch of people in their district to switch to Republicans and vote for them in the primary.
That way we'd win either way.

10. That is great!
Love it! Especially love this line of their press release:

We want to get in on the ground floor of the democracy market before the whole store is bought by China.
