Mitt Romney’s declaration that “corporations are people” flies in the face of our nation’s and state’s founders who intended corporations to be creations of the state, subordinate to real human beings, and not able or capable of being involved in politics. Corporations were intended solely to provide useful goods and services.
Too bad Mr. Romney is not going to be in Northeast Ohio during the next few weeks. If he was, he would have an opportunity to attend educational meetings in Cleveland, Lakewood and Cleveland Heights where the absurd 2010 Citizens United vs FEC Supreme Court decision — anointing corporations with never-intended First Amendment rights — will be exposed and organized against.
Local supporters of Mr. Romney and every other presidential candidate, as well as the general public, are invited to these open public meetings. For details on each gathering, go to http://afsc.net/neoevents.html
