#CorpsArentPeople: Senator Tester Launches Social Media Campaign
If you zip around the interwebs long enough these says you're sure to see something resembling this:
Senator Tester recently launched #CorpsArentPeople social media campaign. The campaign features graphics on Facebook and Twitter showing that corporations can’t perform the same activities – like riding a bike – as real people.
“You don’t see corporations walking a dog or fishing on a Montana lake,” Tester said. “This campaign is about reminding folks that corporations aren’t people, and they shouldn’t get the same Constitutional protections. The Supreme Court’s recent decisions give corporations more say over our elections and private lives. That’s dangerous, and it’s time to fight back.”
Tester is encouraging Facebook and Twitter users to share the graphics using the hashtag #CorpsArentPeople so they reach as many Montanans and Americans as possible. The five graphics, which will be rolled out one-by-one on Tester’s Facebook page and his Twitter feed, include:
· A person walking a dog and a corporation attempting to follow suit
· A person flying a kite and a corporation attempting to follow suit
· A person fishing and a corporation attempting to follow suit
· A person riding a bike and a corporation attempting to follow suit
· A person hiking a mountain and a corporation attempting to follow suit
Should Congress limit corporate spending in elections?
