Yep. Let's give companies, or any other types of legal associations, full rights. When a company commits a crime, it must go to jail. That is, it must shut its doors for the duration of the sentence. Assets are frozen and employees are furloughed.

Brilliant idea right?

No. Not really. Associations have no morals, no ethics, no conscience. How can something with neither of those things exercise any rights, let alone do it responsibly? This is why they must be kept on a much shorter leash than real human beings.

Yep. How do you take someones money. Big Money that is, without feeling obligated to meet with them, listen to them, vote for their silly self indulgent plan that fleeces all of us.

We need term limits.

We need to limit the amount of money all of these guys get.

Actually we need to just chase all of the crooks out of washington.

What about union money, news media donations and environmental activist monies? Its only money given to liberal politicians that is acceptable, right? All others must not, shall not!
