The sad thing with that SCOTUS ruling is that they basically said that corporations have the same rights and liberties as American citizens. This
basically means that some foreigner can create an American corporation and then be privy to our rights and liberties along with influencing our
elections. Think about it, many American corporations are partly owned by foreigners and even foreign governments. That is the deeper end of the
The immediate or more obvious argument is that corporate free speech will trump the free speech of American citizens. I believe that this was one of
the single most dangerous SCOTUS rulings of our times or in the last 50 odd years. Now, more than ever, our politicians will be beholden to
corporations because apparently, they are far more important that individual citizens.
Our Republic has been hijacked, as everyone knows but we are moving towards complete corporatism at an extremely alarming pace. There is no going back
to freedom and liberty for Americans, we are just far too corrupted. There is noway to turn back the corruption that has already rotted our system.
