If the Supreme Court wants to do something in this arena, they should reverse the Citizens United decision. Nobody in their right mind believes a corporation is a “person” with a right to free speech. The owners of corporations have a right to free speech, yes. But nobody should be hiding behind the auspices of a corporation. It’s nefarious and unethical and the Supreme Court only insults We the People and harms their own credibility with nonsense like this decision.

The takeover of the USA continues.
Soon we will be total slaves to the wealthy and their bribed puppets in Washington, and I include the black robed Supreme Clowns in the term “puppets”.

If corporations are citizens, why don’t they join the military and serve in the US armed forces. No wait, that is impossible, a bunch of stocks and buildings cannot complete basic training.
Supreme Idiots is more like it.
Like my Law Professor said: “A judge ain’t nothing but a lawyer with a robe on, and the Supreme Court Justices ain’t nothing but a bunch of lawyer politicians with robes on”.
A brilliant man.

Fantastic now it will be even easier to buy an election. This country is becoming a corrupt joke. Citizens united destroyed the already flawed system we use to elect a leader, now we have people trying to make it worst. Here’s to buying presidents flat out, cheers.

Limits on campaign financing are inherently inconsistent with the First Amendment. In the age of the internet, when everyone has a platform to express himself, it is astonishing to see how many people want to limit that expression or suggest that others are not entitled to their own unfettered expression.
