How to gain the rule of the people, not corporations
Paul Cienfuegos – Corporations vs. People (lecture)

The Citizens United Supreme Court decision gave corporations a green light to secretly funnel in as much money as they want to elect candidates.

Even with a weak economy a record amount of cash has flooded political campaigns. Although corporations are not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution or Bill of Rights a series of legal decisions have given them the rights of personhood and free speech.
