Many corporations help members in their community with donations and other good works. We call this “Being good corporate citizens”. It is finally time for us to be counted as citizens.

With Mitt Romney as president we believe we can finally be counted as citizens. All it will take is an executive order declaring that corporations will be counted as citizens in the state they are incorporated in.

This would apply to both domestic and foreign corporations. Some may wonder why this would be extended to foreign corporations and the answer is rather simple. They have invested in this country employing our citizens and their opinions should be heard.

How would a corporation’s ‘vote’ be counted. We think┬áthat one vote per corporation would be fair.

How would a corporation determine how they should vote on an issue. Corporations make many decisions daily directed by the companies CEO and their policies. Therefore the corporate vote decision will be given to the CEO.

Some may think that Delaware and Nevada will have an unfair advantage due to the number corporations incorporated in those states due to laws that are favorable to corporations. This will cause a win-win situation where other states will realize they have to change their laws to attract more corporations to their states to increase their citizenship.

Ultimately an amendment to the constitution would make this change permanent. We feel that once the executive order has been put in place, there should be enough corporate citizens to call for a Constitutional Convention where the amendment can be ratified.

    Wow! This is exciting news!

    Of course, as full citizens, corporations would no longer be exempt from things that apply to natural, flesh-n-blood citizens.

    For example, that low corporate tax rate that they’re always complaining about being too high? Well, guess what: now that they’re citizens, they’ll have to pay the full rate. And add in FICA, as well, since it is well known that old corporations sometimes need a bail-out. And by the way, when they do need some help, they’ll be limited to the amounts paid to an individual via Social Security or Medicare.

    And while we’re at it, let’s make sure corporations are properly punished for malfeasance. As citizens, they will receive the same punishment as a human being would. If a corporation kills someone, they may have to suffer the death penalty. A corporation could also be physically restrained in prison. Why limit punishment of misbehaving citizens to fines? Corporations are in the business of “making money,” so when they are fined, they simply go out and make more money!

      As part of the 1%, I am not sure the tax liability will actually increase. Trust me corporate welfare is doing fine and may well be the next post.

      Don’t forget Enron, Anderson and Lehman brothers all sufferred the “death penalty”. As for the fines, they are already factored into the profit/loss, no fine is just extra profit.
