    that the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision is potentially the most damaging event to have happened to the electoral processs in the US in recent times.  If reinstating limits on money in political campaigns requires amending the Constitution, then let's get to it.

    On the other hand, when one consideres exactly how little effect all that money has had in this cycle, as kos has pointed out, one has to wonder why they continue.  Would the money they would pay in higher taxes even come close to all the money they've wasted trying to pull this election further to the right?
