The memo that started it all. See why Murray Hill is running for office.

Note:  From time to time, we will post the significant documents from our historic campaign.  This will give the public a sense of the true wisdom behind the Supreme Court's decision and why corporations running for office is the best solution to democracy money can buy.

Re: Market opportunities after Citizens United


The Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC is a landmark decision and an opportunity to seize.  The court has said nothing less than “Corporations are People Too.”  And, while there will be much hand-wringing about the influence of corporate money in politics, I believe the central point will be lost, even to this ruling’s chief beneficiary--the corporate community.

If corporations are people, corporations can vote.  If they can vote, they can hold office.  Holding office means direct control over public spending.  Instead of lobbying so-called independent representatives to take corporate positions, we can save the time and expense and directly run for these positions.  Then government becomes another corporation to corporation negotiation and, in effect, cuts out expensive middlemen who must be continually pushed through election after election.

There are over 500,000 elected officials in the United States controlling the trillions of dollars in public expenditures. That is a tremendous untapped market for us to exploit.

Citizens United--what it means to us.
