The left loves to come unglued over the notion that corporations have any rights to be treated according to what they clearly are: groups of PEOPLE united together for a common cause. To this day, I don’t believe that we’ve ever had a bank of robots decide to incorporate themselves any more than we’ve had a group of chipmunks incorporate themselves. People incorporate. Corporations are people.
Invariably, that is because liberals demand that NOTHING really should have the rights of “personhood” and the freedoms, rights and privileges that persons have under the American Constitution. Rather, they believe, we all ought to be treated as slave meat puppets who are herd animals passively chewing our cuds while government masters push the buttons and pull the levers of a Government-as-God that alone has the divine right to make all decisions for everyone and everything.
Let me point out a fact and then ask a question: corporations can be sued. In fact, liberals LOVE suing corporations. That’s a fact. The question is, “Is there anything else that you can sue that ISN’T a person?” I mean, can I sue a tree, or a rock, or that pesky squirrel?
I asked a liberal that, and he thought in vain for a while before finally brightening. “Governments,” he said. “You can sue governments. Governments aren’t people.”
“Really?” I asked. And then thanked him for once again revealing what fascists liberals invariably are. Because:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Maybe the dream government of liberal Democrats aren’t people, but that’s only because they have nothing whatsoever in common with America or it’s Constitution or the people who wrote it or the people who laid down their lives to defend it. The United States of America is “the people.” It’s PEOPLE. Just like corporations are people.
You can sue a corporation because the same laws that give corporations the right to do things that make fascist liberals so rabid – such as contribute to the political candidates and campaigns that affect them – make them liable to be held accountable for their actions that affect other people.
Only people can sue people. I’ve never received a summons from an opossum. And I’ve never heard of anyone successfully suing a houseplant.
Corporations have rights because they are composed of people united in common cause. The whole entity is deemed a “person” who is able to be held accountable by others or to hold others accountable for actions that affect it.
If you don’t think that corporations should be able to donate to political campaigns because the free speech laws shouldn’t apply to them because they aren’t people, at least shock thinking, decent folk (non-liberals) by demanding that corporations cannot be sued on the identical same ground that they are not people and therefore cannot be held accountable as only people can be held accountable.
But that’s the thing about the left, that’s ALWAYS the thing about the left; they want to dehumanize their opponent, they want to strip away any scintilla of humanity, demonize them and force them into a corner where they have only duties imposed on them and no rights to defend themselves with. Barack Hussein Obama made his career out of following Lucifer’s Rules (see also here) to constantly attack and dehumanize his political enemies as a community agitator employing and literally TEACHING Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. So corporations shouldn’t have any of the rights of people – except the “right” to have liberals sue the life out of them.
As another example of what the world would look like if liberals got their way and were actually CONSISTENT rather than HYPOCRITICAL for just one nanosecond of their despicable existences, consider taxes. Should we try to obtain more revenue by taxing all the animals and insects and fish and birds that live in America??? Why not??? BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT PEOPLE. So let’s agree that corporations aren’t people and let liberals championing abolishing all taxes for corporations. Except for, oh that’s right; liberals are DISHONEST HYPOCRITES.
Just as a final aside, if you really want to know who should not be deemed “people,” it’s the liberal Democrats who think corporations aren’t people. And the reason is that they believe in abortion; which is to say that on their own claim about themselves, they are things that could have been destroyed as “non-people” and in fact are merely non-people at a later point in time. And therefore we the people ought to have “the right to choose” to terminate them the same way they’ve terminated more than sixty million innocent human beings.
