    Corporations arent people, but that statement just proves Romneys original point. You cant tax corporations anymore than you can tax a soda machine (sorry to steal the analogy), the money in the machine dosent belong to it, the machine is not going to go out and blow its money on lottery tickets, the money belongs to the proprietor, the one whom is taxed.

    It would be a brilliant trick if Ron Paul gets in but he is actually part of the NWO.

      I hate you because that actually made me laugh! I don’t believe that would happen in a million years, but it’s a funny visual to picture him getting sworn in, then turning around and saying, “I PUNK’D YOU ALL! Taxes are going up to 99%… the bankers need more vacations. I’m gonna CPS your kids. More fluoride in your water. FEMA Camps open on Friday… be there! Don’t wanna go? SWAT Teams are standing by! Oh well, time for lunch. Later!!!” LMAO

    Technically Paul is wrong. Individuals may be Persons, but they are not People. People is not the plural of person. People is a singular collective noun that denotes a group bound together by a common cultural or political identity.

    Corporations are defined as Fictional Legal Persons. In the older sense of the word, Person denotes a persona, a public face associated with an action. Corporations are certainly persons in that sense; that does not mean they should have the rights of individuals.

    At the end, when it’s Obama v Paul, it’s a no-brainer Paul would win. Paul could expose Obama.

    Another off the cuff crowd pleaser.

    “Well, I think the person who labels themselves a corporation would have equal rights whether they’re an independent business group or a newspaper company.”- Ron Paul, Thom Hartman

    Ron Paul = Consistently Inconsistent

    Watch a documentary called “The Corporation” and you’ll understand that Ron Paul speaks the truth.

    Romney is a flip-flopping empty suit, appeals to the cowards who just want someone who can “get elected”. Why don’t you stop being a Sheep and look at the man’s record and vote on principle, instead of the False Right-Left Paradigm? It doesn’t matter whether it’s Romney or Obama, they both share tacit support for the status-quo: more war, more spending, fewer civil liberties, both bought and paid for by Wall Street. Wake up!

    they dont mean the same, romney was trying to show that corporations cant magically pay taxes, the taxes end up with people. what ron paul was trying to say is that corporations shouldnt have special rights because they are supposedly also people (which they aren’t).
    so romney is right in that taxing corporations really just means taxing people, but that doesn’t mean the corporations themselves are people like ron paul said.

    this video is misleading.

    The important thing to remember is that corporations don’t have inalienable rights. The government grants corporations their charter: to incorporate, to do interstate business, military protection, etc. as an entity. The government grants those rights in exchange for tax revenue and social responsibility. If corporations fail to meet their obligations, or become a burden to the people, the government has a responsibility to dissolve the corporate charter. It is a horrible mistake to pretend otherwise.

    This is one of the few statements that Romney has made which I agree with. I think it’s not inconsistent with Ron Paul’s beliefs. Corporations are just groups of people– like sports teams, debate clubs, or families. Am I missing the fundamental point that Ron Paul made?

    All democrats, the real need for votes for Ron Paul will be in the primaries to get him to the election. But if you want to vote for him, you NEED to be a registered republican. And some states require you to register 3 months in advance. Go to Bluerepublican(.) org and they’ll show you how to register

    Ron Paul 2012!

    Everything that comes out of a soda machine ends up in the hands of humans, so I guess soda machines are people too.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
