The Center Forward Pledge


The People's Rights Amendment


Section 1. We the people who ordain and establish this Constitution intend the rights protected by this Constitution to be the rights of natural persons.

Section 2. People, person, or persons as used in this Constitution does not include corporations, limited liability companies or other corporate entities established by the laws of any state, the United States, or any foreign state, and such corporate entities are subject to such regulations as the people, through their elected state and federal representatives, deem reasonable and are otherwise consistent with the powers of Congress and the States under this Constitution.

Section 3. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to limit the people's rights of freedom of speech, freedom of the press, free exercise of religion, and such other rights of the people, which rights are inalienable.

I wonder if the "People's Rights Amendment" couldn't better be replaced by the simpler

Anti-Corporate-Personhood Amendment


Corporations are not people, and corporate monies are not speech.


The first phrase was my originally-preferred version of the Amendment, and any court, including Supreme Court, that could re-interpret that to re-legalize corporate personhood or corporate monetary intervention in elections could re-interpret the much more complicated "People's Rights Amendment" likewise.
