As Chief Justice Stephens wrote in his dissent of the January 2010 Citizens United decision:
“. . . corporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires. Corporations help structure and facilitate the activities of human beings, to be sure, and their ‘personhood’ often serves as a useful legal fiction. But they are not themselves members of “We the People” by whom and for whom our Constitution was established.”
“Therefore, we the citizens of Lawrence Kansas MOVE TO AMEND the Constitution of the United States of America, stating that CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE, and MONEY IS NOT SPEECH.”
As candidate running for Kansas governor, I will never accept corporate funding, or sponsorship.
Meeting Laurie and Sara was wonderful, thanks for all that you are doing for Kansas!

Kansas farmer sues Monsanto over GMO wheat discovery
WICHITA, Kansas (AP) – “A Kansas farmer has sued seed giant Monsanto over last week’s discovery of genetically engineered experimental wheat in Oregon.
The civil lawsuit filed Monday by Elkhart wheat grower Ernest Barnes alleges the finding of the unapproved wheat in an 80-acre
field drove down wheat futures prices and caused a backlash from some international markets, which suspended certain imports. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
Warren Burns, one of the attorneys representing the farmer, said in a phone call from Dallas that such lawsuits help police the agricultural system and make sure farmers are protected.
Monsanto Executive Vice President David Snively issued a statement saying “tractor chasing lawyers” have prematurely filed lawsuits without any evidence of fault and before the crop’s harvest.”
