Do you have a legal precedent to point to? The Bill of Rights (the first 10 amendments to the constitution) didn't even apply to state governments until the 14th amendment.

> Do you have a legal precedent to point to?

For revoking corporate charter? Every jurisdiction which grants them also already reserves the power to revoke them. E.g., Delaware: http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/decode/8/1/X/284


For revoking a corporate charter for violating a customer or partner's 1st amendment rights.


What precedent would one need?

You ask the government for a license to incorporate. You pay some money to facilitate this incorporation.

This is no different than a drivers license. The gov't can say yea or nay to that under criterion they decide.
