Model Amici Curiae Brief to Eliminate Corporate Rights, by Richard Grossman, Thomas Alan Linzey, & Daniel E. Brannen, 9/23/03

 

Summary of Argument

The people of these United States created local, state, and federal governments to protect, secure, and preserve the people’s inalienable rights, including their rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is axiomatic that the people of these United States — the source of all governing authority in this nation — created governments also to secure the people’s inalienable right that the many should govern, not the few. That guarantee — of a republican form of government — provides the foundation for securing people’s other inalienable rights and vindicates the actions of people and communities seeking to secure those rights.

Corporations are created by State governments through the chartering process. As such, corporations are subordinate, public entities that cannot usurp the authority that the sovereign people have delegated to the three branches of government. Corporations thus lack the authority to deny people’s inalienable rights, including their right to a republican form of government, and public officials lack the authority to empower corporations to deny those rights.

Over the past 150 years, the Judiciary has “found” corporations within the people’s documents that establish a frame of governance for this nation, including the United States Constitution. In doing so, Courts have illegitimately bestowed upon corporations immense constitutional powers of the Fourteenth, First, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments, and the expansive powers afforded by the Contracts and Commerce Clauses.

Wielding those constitutional rights and freedoms, corporations regularly and illegitimately deny the people their inalienable rights, including their most fundamental right to a republican form of government. Such denials are beyond the authority of the corporation to exercise.

Such denials are also beyond the authority of the Courts, or any other branches of government, to confer.

Accordingly, the constitutional claims asserted by the [x corporation] against [y government] must be dismissed because those claims deny the people’s rights to life and liberty, and their fundamental right to self-governance.

Mr. Bachmann, why are you hiding your service to Monsanto from the US Chamber of Commerce’s members?

One of the largest contributors to the Republican Party, the US Chamber of Commerce (also recently charged with fraud and money laundering), has a senior member with an odd bio.

John Bachmann is a current member of the Monsanto’s Board of Directors and past Chairman of the US Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors and current member of the same BoD. He also sits on the board of AMR, owner of American Airlines, and is a senior partner at Edward Jones.

John W. Bachmann

Though Bachmann’s other business associations are mentioned, glaringly and obviously absent from his US Chamber of Commerce bio is any mention of his service to Monsanto:

[Monsanto: phrase not found]

In his Monsanto bio however, he’s pretty proud of his service to the US Chamber of Commerce.

“John W. Bachmann, 71, is a senior partner of Edward Jones, a major financial services firm that advises individual investors. From 1980 until 2004, Mr. Bachmann served as managing partner of Edward Jones. Mr. Bachmann was elected to the Monsanto board in May 2004 and is a member of the Audit and Finance Committee and the People and Compensation Committee. He also serves on the boards of AMR Corporation and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, where he was the chairman of the board for 2004-2005.

Mr. Bachmann has been elected to a term that expires in 2011.”

Mr. Bachmann, why are you hiding your service to Monsanto from the US Chamber of Commerce’s members?
