Now I think we have to be worried:  recently it was determined that corporations can be viewed as individuals and as individuals share ALL the rights as individuals even while they are a huge conglomerate.  This one, really, is running for office?

Murray Hill Incorporated is Running for Congress
Corporations are people too!

Until now, corporations only influenced politics with high-paid lobbyists and backroom deals. But today, thanks to an enlightened Supreme Court, corporations now have all the rights the founding fathers meant for us. It was their dream to build the best democracy money can buy.

That’s why Murray Hill Incorporated is taking democracy’s next step

This is a joke, right?  This seems to be a lobbying or advertising firm.  I can’t imagine what would happen if they ever won.

There is a simple solution to this problem (if this story is real, which I doubt): don’t vote for them. I can’t imagine anyone doing that anyway. If a corporation somehow did win, the voting public would deserve the consequences.

P.S. I think this thread should be moved to the Hoax category.

I think you’re right, Captain Al. The Murray Hill website is extremely dubious - including selling t-shirts.

Thread moved.

I was curious as to what would happen if I clicked on “support” to offer a political donation:

Murray Hill Inc. video program. This is NOT a federal campaign account or a tax-exempt donation.

So your contribution goes toward a video program and not campaign?  What do they mean by video program?
