However, they then unconstitutionally rewrote the law to claim it was a tax and to say that taxing powers are allowed. And the Supreme Court has been known to take unconstitutional actions in the past in addition to this one, so it's not a huge surprise. That's what happens when you have a minimum of 4 judges who will always believe that they can change the Constitution based on their personal whims instead of the intent of the document.
and yet, you saw no problem with them just declaring that corporations were people....
Corporations are groups of people and since we have the freedom of association, those groups also have the freedom of speech. You cannot keep people from speaking simply because they are part of a group. The government does not have the authority to decide which groups are allowed to speak and which ones aren't.
That you persist in patently ignoring that giving a group rights equal to any other individual effectively gives that group MORE power, becuase, among other reasons they still hold their individual rights to speech, etc. pretty much shows how little you have actually thought this out.
In what universe does saying a corporation is not an individual and therefore doesn't have individual rights of speech mean that each individual within that corporation has no right to free speech
Your "reasoning" had nothing to do with the Supreme Court ruling, anyway.
