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.

  5. This is what the elites really fear. You see Ron really means to curb the power of the lobbiest factions. If we can get a pro-american elected and he doesn't just give lip service to it he stands by the principle laid out in the constitution. If the talking heads on radio had any real character they would be promoting Ron Paul as the best thing to happen in years.

  8. Corporations are people and therefore should have protected speech (including the ability to donate unlimited cash to election campaigns) because someone ultimately gets the money that they make after overhead. What kind of logic is THAT?

    Mitt, this is me, a Scandinavian-style Social Democrat, agreeing with Ron Paul, an American style Libertarian, that you're wrong. Romney, you KNOW you messed up when you get diametrically opposed people to team up on you.

  9. Nobody has a right to murder a baby. Murderers always dehumanize their victims; abortionists dehumanize babies by calling them "biomasses."
    Like abortionists, Nazis dehumanized their victims by saying that they were not really human. Many women who are badgered into the murder of their children develop severe emotion problems when they fully realize the despicable thing they did. Thousands of Americans want to adopt, so there is no excuse for the murder of babies- unless abortionists enjoy it.

  10. The US average corporate tax rate is 40%, the highest in the world! Why do you think companies are going overseas? Raising taxes will not generate more revenue, it will only alienate the business owners more!

  11. Romney's right. If you tax corporations, all you're doing is shifting the decision of who pays the tax away from the government and onto a company board. It's a cowards tax increase, because you are saying "I'm going to tax your company $1million. But you get to decide who pays". It's always people who pay, through lower wages, higher cost of goods, or lower dividends. You can't tax a corporation without making some people pay more.

  13. This actually gave me a little bit of hope for the American People to see them laugh in Mitt Romney's face when he attempted to spread the untruth that corporations are people. What total bullshit! When corporations rake in record profits it's not the community that prospers it's the Elite at the very top, and the people know this. Wealth has been centralized into very few hands and this is a defining characteristic of the 21st century, sadly.

  16. I thought the supreme court alread ruled that corporations had the same rights as a "person." Legaly speaking a Person is simply a strawman fiction that exists as the entity in which commerce takes place. The Merkabah if you will. Paul obivously is well schooled in which he clarify's the distinction between indivudals and persons.....GOOD!
    I dont see how either person is correct, all money ends up in a bank....
