    Not “best” but “most compliant”.

    That’s OK; We know who pays your salaries.

    We all need to know who is supporting the candidates. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office, you have to do the bidding of the person who is paying your way. Just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty. If the candidate is getting his money from small donors, or from unions, he is going to be working for the working people. If his donations are from corporations or 1%er, don’t figure he is going to go against them and do anything for the middle class. It would be political suicide.

    They are, piece by piece, rigging the system so that corporate donors and billionaires can give money, in secret, to puppet politicians who will do their bidding. I guess most of us are whores, and have different prices for moral compromise. But it becomes treason when those elected to public office, entrusted to that responsibility, instead sell us out to special interests. Look at the craven boot-lickers following that billionaire around Las Vegas to see where the power flows.
    How much would it take for you to crap in your own nest? Or hey, maybe they can arrange for you to live elsewhere after crapping in your nest.

    What these judges seem to forget (or ignore) is that by this ruling, and another ill-considered ruling two years ago which accorded inanimate corporations the same constitutional protection of free speech as people, they have given big money disproportionate power at the polls. All corporate officers, and wealthy owners of large companies each have ONE VOTE at the polls, the same as working people, and less fortunate. And, each citizen is free to express one’s views by writings, speeches, blogs and advertising. These two rulings give corporations excessive influence, far above that of a regular citizen, and certainly not intended, much less imagined by the men who carefully composed our Constitution.

    These two rulings are the worst products of the SCOTUS since the Dred Scott decision, which was also fueled by the politics and animosities of the time. I cannot imagine how educated men and women, who have ascended to such a position of responsibility to the citizens of this country, could have the gall to equate corporate entities with people! I wonder how many years (if ever) it will be for a future SCOTUS to reverse these depraved rulings.

    Who is trying to squelch anyone’s freedom of speech? Every citizen has a vote. Any citizen can write to his newspaper, news broadcaster, stand on his soapbox or write in GOCOMICS what his views are. However, it is not news that money, especially great quantities of it, can corrupt people’s principles. It can cause elected legislators and bureaucrats to stoop to lower standards, and do things which are detrimental to the very people who elected them to office! There are endless accounts of such behavior thoughout history, in all nations.

    If anyone is trying to squelch one’s freedom of speech, it is these Republican efforts at bringing back the old “Jim Crow” laws, and challenging a citizen’s right to cast his ballot.
