Government by, for and of the people

-A A +A

If a Community Rights Ordinance is unconstitutional, then the word constitutional has no meaning. A community rights ordinance is written to return power to communities to protect themselves from greedy corporations.

The 14th Amendment was added to the U.S. Constitution to give rights of citizenship to former slaves, to “all persons born or naturalized in the United States.” It was not intended to give personhood to corporations. A corporation is a business that belongs to some people. Human beings are persons. Without human beings’ names on it, the corporation does not exist. Everyone knows a corporation is not a person.

People have the right to have a self-government “by, for, and of the people.” We don’t need politicians’ permission to empower ourselves. The Constitution is a living, breathing document, and the spirit of a CRO is to amend the Constitution to block corporations’ use of unjust laws that take away our voice.
