    That is a SCOTUS decision. The personhood of a corporation has a long tradition in our Republic.

    What are the ballot choices besides yes/no?

    A corporation is a creature of the state. States can regulate them out of existence if they wanted to.

    Certain states treat abstentions on initiatives as no votes.

    BTW - a good idea. I like it when those who make the decisions have a direct financial stake in the company.

    The Republicans have started to run anti-Prop 2 ads here in Michigan, as well as anti-Prop 2 social media posts (I've fired back on a couple of their Tweets). My parents said they saw their first ad tonight.

    So who knows?

    And I got some anti Prop 2 stuff in the mail today, which promptly went in the Circular File. Same mailer said Prop 2 and Prop 3 were "Democrats rigging elections." What rot.

    The Detroit Free Press has already exposed that it's almost all paid for by the DeVos'. Just keep doing the right thing, and throwing it away.
