Suggests tax plan for corporations

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDApril 18, 2014 

Just a though I have been pondering: If corporations are people and have the right to free speech that they now use to pour large sums of money into buying elections, then should they also not have the responsibility to pay income taxes under the same rules and rates as individuals? It seems to me that the division of our country along the lines of conservative - liberal - tea party is a tactic to keep us all fighting against each other and not recognize that we are being fooled.
