At the crux of the crisis are two core legal doctrines. One is "corporate personhood," a court-created precedent that illegitimately gives corporations rights that were intended for human beings. The other is "money equals free speech."

Well, if corporations are people, a lot of them should be in jail like any other criminal psychopath.

I had already signed, but here is hotlink to the petition you mention Judy
Move To Amend

I also signed petition Angelika left. Hotlink to that is:
No Drones by USA to support France in Mali Military Campaign

From within the article:
A small ruling elite (often succinctly described as the 1%) have stolen control of the country, and they are ruling over us. They use the fašade of elections to legitimize the theft.

Is good article and advise others to read. I've always said, this fight is to be fought on many levels and from many directions as it has so embedded into our society. Education is key. People have to understand what is at the root of it all.

Let's be serious, now.
Corporations are made up of people, and the individual people have already made their individual decisions.
How can you get two votes?

This whole business, in just, but one, of the reasons the Mittster was not elected.

Checked again and see it as does Cheryl. It would be better to post a direct link to the petition you would like us to consider please.

C2 ate my comment....ok try again.

I placed a direct link to the petition in a hotlink in my comment. For those who did not notice it here it is again. The link brought one to the page at the top it said Sign Petition. But for those needing an even more direct link I took a next step for you. I know some of us are having eye issues and it was a busy page to see things. This should be a lot more clear.
Move To Amend Petition

For those who would like to sign petition Angelika left on the drones go to my top comment and that will lead you to two petitions, one on Mali the other for Pakistan.
