Pelosi and Democrats Move to Change First Amendment

The title says it all. The audacity and stupidity of these morons knows no bounds or restrictions. If I've learned anything watching politics for the last 20 or so years, it is this: beware of any legislation which has "People" or "rights" in the title, because it usually will be the exact opposite of what you would expect is in it, especially if it originates from a democrat or liberal.

The Founding Fathers wanted profits, not income, subject to taxation. You want to restore the Founder's Vision, repeal the 16th Amendment and stop taxing income. Income is not profit.

Pelosi and Democrats Move to Change First Amendment
Minority Leader Pelosi said that the move to amend the Constitution was part of a three-pronged strategy that includes passage of the DISCLOSE Act, which would further regulate disclosure requirements for organizations that run political ads, and promotion of taxpayer funding of political campaigns. Ms. Pelosi said, “Our Founders had an idea. It was called democracy. It said elections are determined by the people, the voice and the vote of the people, not by the bankrolls of the privileged few. This Supreme Court decision flies in the face of our Founders’ vision and we want to reverse it.”

Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Massachusetts), who is also sponsoring the amendment, said, “I've introduced a People's Rights Amendment, which is very simple and straightforward. It would make clear that all corporate entities, for-profit and non-profit alike, are not people with constitutional rights. It treats all corporations, including incorporated unions and nonprofits, in the same way, as artificial creatures of the state that we, the people, govern, not the other way around.”
