      those individuals are free to speak.  Nobody is preventing them.  A corporation however is not a living entity. To give them rights that the individuals already possess grants them special privileges that people who cannot for whatever reason create a corporation lack.  

      Next you'll be saying that corporations can vote because they're people my friend.  When does the bullshit end?  SO a corporation of one can vote twice?  They have twice the rights to free speech?  This is utter bullshit.
