Believe me, I don't think this is funny at all. I couldn't believe the decision when I heard about it.
We have got to fix this...unfortunately...it's going to be extremely difficult to do. The next elections will most likely be a sham. We could lose the few good politicians we have left.
It was a terrible attack against individual liberty and our Constitution.
I've also got to admit...watching this video is surreal.
To think we'd see the day that this could even be possible...let alone LEGAL.

Then people should just not vote for them. If they do, then they deserve the government they get.

I thought this was funny... until I realized they are serious. Oh. My. God. Corporations are not people, they exist to provide additional rights and privileges that ordinary people do not have. The idea of corporations is not capitalist... its fascist. Corporations should not exist. If a for-profit company wants to exist, fine.

This may well be funny to some people,but not for me. The SCOTUS screwed the pooch on this ruling. Elections can now be bought outright,legally,with full support of the Supreme Court.
If people don't wake up soon,and see what's happening to this country. They'll awake to find themselves in a country where debtors prisons are back in vogue,and not supporting the corporation is a treasonist act.
