Rights? You don't have any. Corporations do.

The United Citizens Supreme Court ruling not only elevated corporations to personhood and gave them full rights, it set in motion a process whereby individuals are deprived of those rights.  Government is superseded by corporations as the determiner of rights and responsibilities.

Slate tells the story

Disclosure of contributors to political campaigns, and campaign advertisements, used to be an unobjectionable proposition. Now, resisting it is a matter of highest principle. Bruce Josten, executive vice president for government affairs for the United States Chamber of Commerce, told Jake Tapper, "We're under no obligation, as any organization or association in the United States is, to divulge who its members are, who its contributors are." Why? Explained Josten: "We're not going to subject our contributors to harassment, to intimidation, and to threats and to invasions of privacy at their houses and at their places of business, which is what has happened every time there's been disclosure here."

Your headline is the typical pathetic liberal lie.

People continue to have the same rights our founders recognized in the Declaration of Independence that we were given by our Creator. Don't lie and say we don't have any.

Also, since it apparently escaped your mind that is so clogged by Marxism that you can't comprehend basic truths, corporations are created by people--you know, those same people who have rights endowed by their Creator? Corporations are also owned by people--you know, those same people who have rights endowed by their Creator? They are also supported by the monetary contributions of people--you know, those same people who have rights endowed by their Creator?

So why not give the Marxist class envy a rest, put the mind God gave you in gear, and do some analytical thinking for a change? It would sure beat the heck out of the un-American tripe that usually comes from this web address.
