  •  Presumably a state can choose not to have (0+ / 0-)

    corporations, but it probably can't keep out foreign corporations who wish to speak. The prospect of all states abolishing corporations is an interesting hypo.

    Ok, so I read the polls.

    •  Not quite the point I was making. States can (0+ / 0-)

      determine what rights their corporations may or may not have, as part of their determination of what a corporation organized in their state can do. This does allow distinctions between religious corporations which have certain different tax positions and secular commercial corporations like Hercules. The question that may have been decided in the Montana version of Citizens United is whether all corporations in fact are persons no matter what they are incorporated to do, and have those general rights that those with feet in shoes have, once they exist at all.
