End Corporate Personhood

Corporations are not people. Corporations do not have citizenship. The Constitution of the United States of America does not even mention corporations. As a result, corporations do not have any civil rights, including the rights to free speech or to vote.

However, corporations have more political power than any individual. Corporations may even have greater political power than all the people combined. This is because in politics, money is power.

For this reason, the U.S. is no longer a "government of the people, by the people, for the people". Maybe it never really was.

Since owners, including stock holders and stake holders, of any corporation have their civil rights to represent their businesses, there should be no need for corporations to lobby any level of government.

Since corporations have much more resources and money than any person, maybe it should be against the law for any corporation to represent themselves and their self interests in the government. This would logically include ending corporate personhood too, since corporations should not be directly bestowed any rights including civil rights.
