Listen up, Supreme Court — corporations are not people!

By MARGARET VALONE , The OBSERVER

I am so concerned about the law the Supreme Court passed identifying a corporation as a person. Therefore, no one can stop a candidate running for office from spending as much as they want to. This is taking democracy right out of our country! The big corporation can hire lobbyists, they can force the candidates they heavily support to vote for their interests. Where does that leave the people at the grass roots? We have numbers, but are we organized? Forget about parties! Don't let those labels blind you! Who do you trust?
