that isn't personal freedom. corporations are not people, despite what the supreme court would have you believe.


Tracking the distance people drive and taxing them on mileage driven to work is not infringing on personal freedom?

edit: Of course this is all propsoed crap right now, but the fact that they are even thinking about it.....

It's not even proposed South. It's just people talking about wild ideas.

In that case, neither are political parties, unions, political action committees, the boy scouts etc....

A corporation is a group of people formed together for purposes of profit. As long as they obey the rules of society, then they should have the same rights as any other group.

Only as much as tracking how much money I make and taxing that.

Like Venom said I was agreeing with you and pointing out the similarity to the income tax.

IMO banding together to form a group does not mean we lose our freedoms. That being said, I do believe that congress should have some right to limit campaign contributions, but I believe its going to take a constitutional amendment to define the limits of their ability to limit. If 80% of americans oppose the supreme court ruling as the polls say, then an amendment shouldn't be a problem.
