An Open Letter To Senator Ayotte 


In her reply to constituents who ask her to support a Constitutional Amendment to declare that corporations are not people and do not have the rights given to persons in the Constitution and its Bill of Rights, Senator Ayotte says, “While I appreciate your writing to express your concerns about the Citizens United decision, I believe that First Amendment rights must be vigorously defended and not abridged.”


Senator Ayotte is a lawyer, and was appointed NH’s Attorney General by Governor Benson. I would guess that she is not a constitutional scholar, nor has she apparently read the writings of our founders, or she would recognize and strongly support their concerns about the power of corporations. Our founders did not intend that corporations should have 1st amendment rights to free speech, nor the equal protection of the law that those who made the 14th amendment possible intended for people.


Corporations are not people. They are creations of the state, for specific purposes, and we the people are supposed, through our elected officials, to control them. We have allowed them to run wild, to corrupt our government, and to put their profits before our general welfare; the general welfare that is a purpose of our Constitution.


I would also remind the Senator that individuals who are affiliated with corporations are people and may individually express their freedom of speech and that when money equals speech, freedom of speech for the vast majority is being suppressed due to the inequity of wealth distribution.
