We the people do hereby declare:
Whereas the separation of church and state has been largely effective at preventing powerful religious interests from imposing their will over the public,
Whereas the interests of business has been largely held in higher regard than the interests of the public, and the powerful influence of business interests has convoluted the political process,
There shall likewise be a separation of business and state. Corporations shall be stripped of their citizen-like status and shall not be allowed to petition representatives, contribute to campaigns, or otherwise engage in political activities. Every individual citizen shall have equal access to his or her representative, and none shall have any exceptional influence based in any way on financial assets.
