"Organizations, like individuals, have a right to their own political speech." You want to talk honesty and truth? How about this.... Organizations aren't people, plain and simple. Organizations are a group of people organized (get it?) around a central purpose, be it producing a product, having a bake sale, or creating political movies. An organization is no more a person than flock of geese is a goose. One is singular and the other is plural. Check your basic math and language for more correct uses of both. To try to have the Citizens United ruling apply to corporations as people is so absurd you ought to have your brain washed with simple green, so you can start over down another path.

Only you need your brain washed to get rid of all that liberal BS lodged there which has apparently destroyed your ability to think and reason rationally.

YES! SHUT DOWN ALL CORPORATE SPEECH! THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS!

By the way...

"The DNC Services Corporation (better known as the Democratic National Committee, or DNC) is the organizational and fundraising power behind the party. It plans the presidential nominating convention, promotes candidates from the local to the national level, and sets the party platform. It also encourages citizens to write letters to the editors of local newspapers, register to vote, contribute funds to the cause, and volunteer for Democratic campaigns."

Quote is from Yahoo Finance. (Here's a ROFL - they're listed under "Business Services". Guess they don't have a category for "Looters".)

groups of people virtually HAVE to organize and incorporate,for legal protection,to rent workspace,to establish a bank account,so they can pool their funds,write checks for goods and services needed to get their message out to the public.
that is no reason to remove their speech rights.

You don't actually do anything other than argue whether organizations should be treated the same as people. So, are you saying that "I" have the right to free speech, "you" have the right to free speech, but "we" do not have the right to free speech? If not, it might be a good idea to actually say that. If you do agree that "we" do not have the right to free speech, you need to explain why that's even remotely a reasonable idea.

Then by that logic, all the major news organizations are corporations- an undeniable fact- so they should not have the right to speak or write their opinions either.
The Left’s assault on the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision got high exposure at the 2011 State of the Union when the president famously insulted his robed hostages. The fallout continues, notably in Colorado.
 
Several measures have been proposed here, dedicated to the proposition the First Amendment and Supreme Court protect too much speech; government should tighten the muzzle. An initiative headed for November’s ballot instructs Colorado Senators and Representatives to support a Constitutional Amendment, allowing government freer rein to restrict political speech. But the logic reaches much further. Backers seem clueless about the knife they’re holding to liberty’s...
