Supreme Court Ruling
In a 5 to 4 decision, corporations, unions, special interest groups, and drug and health care lobbies can spend as much as they want to support and elect candidates they want to serve in public office, which will further drown out the voices of the American people. I have been trying to post Keith Olbermann's comment over this from his show posted on YouTube, but it will not post. So, I write a little something about. This is a free speech case and with this ruling, there is no restriction or cap on how much a corporation, a union, or a special interest group will spend to elect a tool to the White House, to a Governor's Mansion, or to local or county office. There is no limit an individual can spend. This may stop net neutrality once and for all. This may end up into having a corporate dictatorship under martial law. It is a ruling like Dred Scott and this may do serious damage to representative democracy.
