Whereas the Constitution of the United States of America makes no provision for regarding corporations as "citizens;" and
Whereas treatment of corporations for legal purposes undermines the letter, spirit and purpose of this Constitution, it shall hereafter be understood that the concept of "corporate personhood" is legally null and void under this Constitution.
In its justly infamous decision known as "Citizens United," a majority of the current Supreme Court gave further legitimacy and power to the legal concept of "corporate personhood," whereby a corporation is to be treated under Federal law as having the same rights as an individual citizen. This concept does not appear in our Constitution, and it has a pernicious effect on our democracy.
