Ron Paul: Corporations Are NOT People

Transcript

Mitt Romney: And there are various ways of doing that. One is we could raise taxes on people. That’s not the way…

Audience: Corporations! Corporations!

Mitt Romney: Corporations are people, my friend. We could raise taxes on… Of course they are. Everything a corporation earns also goes to people.

Audience: Hahaha

Mitt Romney: So… where do you think it goes?

Audience: Pockets.

Mitt Romney: Whose pockets? Whose pockets? People’s pockets. Okay… human beings, my friend.

Interviewer: Real quick question for you… What did you make of Mitt Romney’s statement that corporations are people yesterday?

Ron Paul: Well obviously, they are not. People are individuals, they’re not groups and they’re not companies. Individuals have rights, they’re not collective. You can’t duck that. So individuals should be responsible for corporations, and they shouldn’t be a new creature so-to-speak. Rights and obligations should be always back to the individual.

    Romney’s an idiot who represents the REAL PEOPLE behind corporations….the greedy mother fuckers that pay more to their CEOs than in taxes.

    “A corporation is an abstraction. It has no mind of its own any more than it has a body of its own; its active and directing will must consequently be sought in the person of somebody who is really the directing mind and will of the corporation, the very ego and centre of the personality of the corporation.”

    Corporation has become a dirty word . A corporation can be owned by a single individual so in a sense a corporation CAN be a person. Without corporations the owner of a business is legally liable for anything that happens to the business, which could end up costing the owner their house etc The idea of the corporation itself isn’t bad, it’s simply abused by certain individuals.Just like people say its wrong to judge all for the actions of a few some are judging all corp. because of a few

    RP needs to be hammering this point home every time he’s speaking in public. Modern capitalism has become a corporate socialism where corporations are treated as citizens and people are treated as commodities. If he let people know that he would treat corporations as the legal fictions they are he would get a lot more support from the under-classes of both sides of the political spectrum.

    I want Ron to WIN and I’m not even from the US.
    Funny how that works,
    US President ‘chooses’ policies which effect ‘everyone’ (of the world) but the same ‘Everyone’ cannot choose the president.
    Go Ron.
