You Can Help Overturn Citizens United [VIDEO]

You Can Help Overturn Citizens United [VIDEO]

There are not too many times when the Citizens United decision can elicit laughs. Well, that is, honest laughter, not the laugh-so-you-don’t-cry kind of laughter.

But at least one group of activists has decided that the issue is just too important to treat without humor and produced this video to prove it.

Corporations are people and money is free speech is the biggest most corrupt load of crap and most blantant insult ever laid on the people of this country. Not one of us voted for or acknowledge these things to be true. I love Bernie Sanders, and once again he is right on with his opposition to this.

How can 5 corporate federal judges call this "Citizens United"in fact they made this up that corporations are people then promptly passed it as law. Five people do not citizens united make.
Just goes to show there are no true laws written by corporate judges unless it is to suit their own kind.

Actually, Jeff, a SCOTUS opinion can be overturned in one of two ways. First, is a Constitutional Amendment. The second, however, is for the court to overturn itself. I'm sure you are saying that isn't possible, but it is. The best example is when the court overturned their Plessy v. Furgeson ruling, which said segregation was acceptable in a "separate but equal" sort of way, with the Brown v. Board of Education ruling which struck down segregation. Why do you think all of the anti-choice people are making all of these state laws? They are primarily there to challenge Roe v. Wade in an attempt to overturn it. So, yes, the court can, and has, overturned itself.

Eventually people will end C U .Once the masses realize what the rethuglicans are up to .Right now, they are still scratching their heads, wondering how these union busters got into office. Eventually they will realize that the they just waved the flag of religion in front of them and guns and they all all followed. , there will be riots in the streets.

it is very confusing when entities take on the name 'united', or other socially reverent names without embodying the being of unity. It is furthermore confusing to see the phrase 'overturn citizens united' We are global citizens, and united we are. If these hijackers of a good name are found wilfully intent on confusing society, then they must answer.

Person to a corporation...Hahaaaa.

The devil can be amusing and can only be where there is no sense. Suffice the people of America, the world, are with sense and sight, we should not only stop this but observe and root out these things for they will come in many ways. The son of Man, tested in the desert, answered the devil when the devil returned, so shall the Son of Man overcome.

Does a corporation answer in full one question of one man? It cannot even be make alike the smallest part of man, of a person. If there is such a corporation, write to it, or speak to it. How many days does he take to respond, let alone speak, walk and be like a man. It is absurd. If they were treated as persons they would not be able to afford to pay for their own failures because they would be too many. It is unheard of!

I will do whatever I can to overturn that ridiculus decision. Citizens United is the second worst decision ever made by a Supreme Court.
