A proposed Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (1) to establish that a corporation is not a person, in the meaning of the Constitution, and (2) to establish that money is not equivalent to Constitutionally protected speech, and (3) to protect the sovereignty and the unalienable rights of the people under this Constitution.
Section 1 [A corporation is not a person]
Corporations and other artificial entities, which are established and defined by the laws of any state, the United States, or any foreign state, do not possess any Constitutional rights. Under the U.S. Constitution, people are persons, and a person is a living, breathing human being. In the United States of America, the people are sovereign, and only a person – not a corporation – has unalienable rights.
Citizens of the United States, through laws enacted by Congress and in the several states, or by binding referendum, where permitted, shall determine the privileges, constraints, and regulations applied to corporations and other artificial entities.
Section 2 [Money is not speech]
Subject to regulations, limits, and prohibitions established by the Congress and the states that are intended to reduce or prevent corruption, the appearance of corruption, or undue, inappropriate, or disproportionate influence that would tend to violate equal protection of all persons under the law, any Citizen of the United States, and of a particular state, may make expenditures with the intent, or having the effect, of influencing the election of any candidate for public office, or any ballot measure, or any legislation, regulation, enforcement, or judicial deliberation proposed or before any agency or branch of government of that citizen’s state of residence, or of the United States.
Parties other than citizens of the United States, and of the state in question, are prohibited from making such expenditures or efforts.
The source and amount of any expenditures that have such effect or purpose shall be publicly disclosed if the aggregate amount from that source in one year exceeds 100 times the current federal minimum hourly wage, or a lesser amount if so established by Congress or the states.
Expenditures of material resources, including those that have the effect or purpose of influencing elections or government action, shall not be construed as speech under the First Amendment. Money is property. Speech is words, performance, or perception that is created by a person.
Section 3 [The sovereignty and unalienable rights of the people, strengthened and protected]
The right of the people: to freely speak and write; to freedom of religious expression including freedom from imposed religion; to peaceably associate and assemble; to petition for redress of grievances; to be secure from search, seizure, and persistent surveillance without warrant issued for probable cause, and describing the person or place to be monitored during times other than war that has been declared by the Congress under Article I section 8 of the Constitution; to keep and bear arms; and all other rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution including under Amendments IX and X, shall not be infringed or violated by any party, and shall be upheld by the United States and by the several states.
Subject to reasonable legislation enacted by Congress or the states respecting competency, or protecting against fraud, the right of a citizen to vote in public elections and to have that vote counted, shall not be infringed or denied.
See for yourself the proof that a corporation is NOT a Constitutional “person” and does not legitimately have the Constitutional rights of a person.
