Right. Because what we need to do is allow the richest of the rich to have even MORE influence on our elections…

We need term limits for both Congress and the SCOTUS. Without that, NOTHING will ever change, for long anyway.

Thanks be to the five “conservative” members of this Court who gave the wealthiest among us the greatest power to influence elections. Who cares about the voters when it’s the donors who really count?

Citizens United was the dog that didn’t bark in 2012 – the ungodly amounts of superpac money was spent so stupidly on unbearable TV bombardments that any impact on any voting was hard to discern. Unless these mighty minds come up with some more effective way to spend the money it may not make a difference what the SCOTUS decides. For better or worse, probably better, the internet seems to have superseded campaign advertising.

Step by step, the Republican dominated court is dismantling democracy in this country. Is it any wonder that congress has no compunction about ignoring the majority of US citizens when it comes time to vote. They owe their souls (as if they actually had some) to the company store. Why not just forgo the farce of staging elections and let the corporate fat cats appoint whoever they want.
