What do you guys think about the Supreme Court's decision? Is this big enough to become an Amendment (that corporations ARE people)? Or has the Supreme Court actually done more that it was legally allowed to?

Well by the logic of corporations are people due to being composed of people, the government is also people due to being composed of people. Therefore the federal government should be allowed to bankroll political candidates.

You really don't want to know my opinion on that travesty of a court decision.

Citizens United is pure stupid for the mere fact that it would allow a North Korean owned corporation, or a Taliban shell corporation to purchase ad time on US television to endorse a politician. I'm not even going to address the policy reasons why it is terrible.
