End Citizens United Quotes

...corporate personhood is a real scandal...the meaning of the 14th Amendment was expanded so that 'person' included corporations, and over the years corporations have gotten rights that are way beyond those of persons of flesh and blood...there's plenty of anti-corporate feeling in the country but it's unfocused... a constitutional amendment would be a great idea... there has to be a lot of organizing and educational work to build up a major groundwell of support which will call for restoring the 14th Amendment to what the words say...the idea that a corporation should be given personal rights is a major attack on classical liberal doctrines which held that rights inhere in 'persons' - persons of flesh and blood, not collectivist legal entities established by state power...
-- Noam Chomsky

This is a crucial time in the fight for corporate civil rights. Just look at the hateful signs at Occupy Wallstreet: 'Corporations Are Not People!' Wow, I thought we were past the point in this country where some people aren't people just because they have different color skin or different religion or were born in a lawyer's office, only exist on paper, have no soul and can never die. -- Stephen Colbert

“Let freedom ka-ching...Corporations do everything people do except breathe, die and go to jail for dumping 1.3 million pounds of PCBs in the Hudson River.
-- Stephen Colbert

Corporations have free speech, but they can't speak like you and me. They don't have mouths or hands ...(Just A Giant Middle Finger) -- Stephen Colbert

... challege the underlying concepts of corporate personhood ...
-- Dennis Kucinich

It's time for us to review the circumstances under which corporations gain rights superior to that of individuals in our society. It's time for us to look at the practices of corporations and holding them accountable for violations of law which often go unnoticed because there is very little regulation.
-- Dennis Kucinich

You can't have a people's democracy as long as corporations are considered people.
-- Bill Moyers

“Capitalism is out of control, thanks in no small part to Citizens United, the Supreme Court decision which said that a corporation is a person, even though it doesn't eat, drink, make love, sing, raise children or take care of aging parents. You can't have a people's democracy as long as corporations are considered people.”
-- Bill Moyers

"The billionaires and their super PACs increasingly control the American political process. This is not democracy. This is not what brave Americans fought and died to defend. This is oligarchy. This is government of the few, by the few and for the few. We must overturn Citizen United and move to public funding of elections."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"As a result of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, American democracy is being undermined by the ability of the Koch brothers and other billionaire families. These wealthy contributors can literally buy politicians and elections by spending hundreds of millions of dollars in support of the candidates of their choice. We need to overturn Citizens United and move toward public funding of elections so that all candidates can run for office without being beholden to the wealthy and powerful."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"There are three major political organizations in this country: the Republican Party, the Democratic Party and the Koch Brothers Party. With billions to spend on campaigns. think tanks and 'educational' organizations, the Koch brothers are the most powerful. We must overturn Citizens United, move to public funding of elections and pass real tax reform."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"In the last presidential election Obama and Romney raised about $1 billion each. The Koch brothers, the second wealthiest family in America, now say they will raise nearly $1 billion for the 2016 elections. When one family can raise as much as an entire party, the system is broken. This is oligarchy, not democracy. We must overturn Citizens United."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

-- Robert Alan Silverstein

I still do not understand how a corporation can have person-hood if it has no soul and never dies.
-- Jon Stewart

In whose delusional mind is democracy made better by allowing wealthy people to control more of it?
-- Jon Stewart

What we have now is a situation where politicians get a whole bunch of money from mainly business interests. Then once they hold that office, they spend all their time in office paying back over and over again those campaign contributions through various favors and contracts and that sort of thing.
-- Matt Taibbi
