End Corporate Access to the First Amendment

Start of the New YeaWrong Streetr with signing some petitions, particularly this one! The description below for the petition is from the link’s main page on “CREDO Mobilize”, which can be found here:

End Corporate Access to the First Amendment

Uphold the fact that ‘commercial speech’ is not protected by the first amendment. Disallow corporate entities from having free-speech and freedom of religion. Only humans have these rights. Corporations are abstract entities created by law, i.e. not human.

Why is this important?

Corporations and their allies have used the First Amendment to subvert the government’s right to limit and regulate their actions, and have allowed corporations to garnered rights that were previously reserved for human beings. Corporate entities have significantly more power in the courts than individuals. This imbalance of power has greatly diminished the vox populi.
