People are people

To the Journal editor:

Citizens United is a not so clever ruse for corporations to further distort, erode and potentially destroy our democracy. It is an insult to our intelligence to assert that corporations are people.

Corporations can contribute to better society and strengthen our democratic structures. But they can also wield enormous influence over our political process, corrupt and prostitute our democracy.

We must control the amount of political contributions and identify their source to insure fairness and balance.
