Anderson Campaign stands with United to Amend: Corporations do not have Free Speech rights
“If a corporation IS a person, how would you feel about other ways that a corporation could act, legally? Could Microsoft get married? Could Monsanto adopt a child? Could Raytheon vote, or hold public office? Of course not.”
MIDDLETON – Phil Anderson, Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin, is in agreement with United to Amend. Wisconsin United to Amend is a state network of concerned citizens who seek to overturn Citizens United and related Supreme Court decisions in order to reclaim the liberties and privileges guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution for real people.
“Friends, disabuse yourselves of the notion that corporations are persons. I’m not opposed to corporations protecting business related liability, but that they are legal persons is patently absurd. It’s bad law, and only remains so because of the amount of money supporting the idea.
“Corporations as people perverts the idea of a free society where people can voice their opinions, and by discussion and debate, the best ideas rise to the top. American society is a LONG way from that ideal, and corporations as people is a big part of the problem. As your U.S. Senator I will propose legislation to change federal law, and to amend the U.S. Constitution, so that unaccountable, soulless corporations can no longer suppress and drown out the speech of ordinary citizens.”
Anderson is a real estate broker residing in Middleton, WI and is an active member in the state and local Libertarian Party along with his two children. He is the second candidate to officially declare a bid for the seat which is up for election on November 5, 2024.
