Corporations are people too!

"While liberal and conservatives will continue to debate the hollow question of whether this denigrates democracy or elevates free speech, almost no one will ask the only important question: why the fuck are we debating the scope of a Corporation's free speech? Just like the question of whether wheat grown for personal consumption is commerce among the several states, the answer to the question of whether Corporations are persons, and therefore endowed with the freedom of speech, is fucking obvious. Neither a piece of paper, some words, a collection of liabilities, or a group of people, is a person. And yet."
