Because everyone is equal, but some people are more equal than others. Thanks to Citizens United and the Supreme Court, that includes corporations.
One thing I’ve wondered about is if corporations are people, why haven’t they been given the right to vote yet? Corporate Lives Matter!
Be careful, next they will want to run for office.

Ah, but the stock owners have the right to vote. Each of my eight grandchildren have a tiny bit of Exxon that gives them $40 every three months. Exxon stock holders are trying to hold Exxon accountable for the damage they are doing to the environment so every few days I get more voting material to fill out. It isn’t coming on-line. It is old family stock so can’t be sold. A pain.
“The Great Deluge” by Douglas Brinkley educated me that my family went down to the fishing areas around New Orleans, pushed the native Americans out of their fishing areas and started digging for Gulf Oil. That morphed into Exxon over the years.
