The Honorable James C. Nelson, a retired justice of the Montana Supreme Court and a member of the Legal Advisory Committee for Free Speech For People shared his latest op-ed with the Independent Record:
"Ponder this: Every single civil right that corporations and nonhuman entities enjoy (and there’s a good number) have been created from whole cloth by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Constitution itself gives no civil rights to anything other than natural persons. Yet in the recent Hobby Lobby decision, for example, the Roberts majority even endowed some corporations with the right to freely exercise religion.
So, what’s next? Will corporations and special interest PACs eventually get the right to actually vote? Why not? They’re already funding the worst government that money can buy."
