The Rights of Corporations



Yesterday when the U.S Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to overturn federal laws that forbade corporations from using profits to pay for political campaign ads, a majority of the judges thought the laws violated the corporations’ right to free speech.

“No sufficient governmental interest justifies limits on the political speech of nonprofit or for-profit corporations,” wrote Justice Anthony Kennedy in the majority opinion.

Buck Quigley, a journalist with Buffalo’s Art Voice, sees it as a landmark decision that should help the drive to give corporations more rights, such as voting and marriage.

Quigley makes a great point, and his article should prompt any true American to stand up for those less fortunate.
