30. The Court is wrong
Edited on Wed Sep-09-09 01:52 PM by Dogtown
and disingenuous.

If corporations are "persons", then some (with the appropriate "birth certificates") must also be citizens. By that logic, they should be allowed to cast a vote.

The comparison is silly, and is legalistic subterfuge used to justify allowing corporations to influence and control government, essentially robbing us of our votes.

Until Americans are willing to act as if this were truly the "home of the brave", we will continue to be chattel. I don't see that actually happening.

America is overdue for Balkanization. I'm beginning to believe it's inevitable, and that we'll see it soon.
