My Take On Corporations Weighing In On Voting Laws
So it’s official that major companies have the right to express their corporate opinion concerning state legislators to create laws to insure that only qualified and registered voters cast their ballots. It seems that Delta and United airlines have now crossed the line providing public transportation to espousing civic responsibility. Show me where the Constitution says that either government or commerce have any rights other than those given by the people?
Corporations have the duty and the responsibility to obey the laws of the United States and the state(s) where they operate. Legislation is the constitutional authority of state legislators. So all of a sudden we have people who are exponentially transposing their constitutional rights as citizens to their corporations?
What is clear to me is this. It is the responsibility of corporations to comply with the laws or leave that state or territory. In the case of an airline, that may result in the loss of revenue paying customers and or the expense of legal fees and court costs entangling corporate lawyers in a needless legal battle.
We have already seen major sports relocating because of politics which is their choice. But maybe, just maybe someone should take a good look at the document which they claim gives them an entitlement to political clout – The Constitution of the United States of America.
This document does not begin with “We the Corporations”.
