By Rick Ungar – The provable reality is that the Founding Fathers did not think very much of corporations or, for that matter, any of the organized moneyed interests that played so large a role in their decision to revolt against Mother England. To understand this, it is important to understand the nature of corporations during the days when the United States was founded.
The modern corporation dates back to the early 17th century when Queen Elizabeth I granted a charter to create the East India Trading Company. During that time, corporations were small, quasi-government institutions approved by the crown for a specific purpose.
Does that sound like a person to you?
Indeed, many American colonies were originally governed by corporations— such as the Massachusetts Bay Company.
We all know how well that went over with the Founding Fathers. more> http://tinyurl.com/qbktz28
