Corporate Personhood and Citizens United Will be the Death of America if Not Reversed


President Thomas Jefferson
The plight of our nation can best be seen in the rise of corporate influence in our electoral process and in its insertion into our legislative process.
Our founding fathers made it abundantly clear that corporations and banking were the greatest threats to the “Grand Experiment”, The United States of America.
With the prominence of the Tea Party movement and the loathing of the American citizenry by the Republican party, we seeing the greatest fears of Jefferson, Madison and Lincoln coming true in our lifetime.
It thought it would serve as a fitting example to provide some of the more memorable quotes regarding the corporatization of our government below.
“I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.”
--Thomas Jefferson, 1816
