Resolution Calling to Amend the Constitution Banning Corporate Personhood Introduced in Vermont
excerpt – In Vermont, state senator Virginia Lyons on Friday presented an anti-corporate personhood resolution for passage in the Vermont legislature. The resolution, the first of its kind, proposes “an amendment to the United States Constitution … which provides that corporations are not persons under the laws of the United States.” Sources in the state house say it has a good chance of passing….
“Corporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires,” wrote Stevens (Justice John Paul Stevens). “Corporations help structure and facilitate the activities of human beings, to be sure, and their ‘personhood’ often serves as a useful legal fiction. But they are not themselves members of ‘We the People’ by whom and for whom our Constitution was established.”
David Cobb said, “This is the first state to introduce at the legislative level a statement of principles that corporations are not persons and do not have constitutional rights,”
This is Huge people! Get behind this movement voice your support by calling your state legislators, tell Gov. Shumlin, tell your friends and family this could initiate the fall of the Corporate rule, which means a Government by We the People for We the People, how it was meant to be. I know many of you feel there is nothing your little voice can do, this is the time to drop this sentiment and roar! If you are tiered of not having a say in the direction our country goes, than stand up and be heard. Remember Corporate America owns the majority of our Media the majority of our food production, the majority of our medicines, on and on….. It is time we tell the corporations, they work for We The People, we are not their subjects! Once their money and thus their voice is out of the political process our politicians must answer to us and not to the blackmail bribery of Multi-trillion dollar monopolies.
Peace Peace Peace the Time of Corporate War is Over We the People want PEACE!
