More free speech...


...more, more, more.

So, everyone has their panties in a wad over the Supreme Court decision on Citizens United v. FEC as some sort of assault on political free speech and democracy itself. The irony that the Supremes ruled against the government banning speech was not lost on us.

The concern that the floodgates of corporate cash will now be opened and poured into the body politic is laughable. That horse left the barn years ago.

Again, our refrain: You will never remove money from politics until you decrease the reach and power of politics/government by a corresponding degree.

The popular accusation I've seen is that they established "corporate person-hood" by not removing folks' speech-rights when they express them via organizations.
