  •  the first amendment issue is bullshit (4+ / 0-)

    inthat money has no business being declared as speech.  This mean SCOTUS nominees who are grilled on this at confirmation hearings.

    As far as that goes, corporate personhood is equally bullshit and should be reversed.  Unfortunately, that perverted premise has 140 or so years or precedent going for it,  while money-as-speech is a relatively recent perversion that could be challenged at law.

    The Framers would be horrified at these legal perversions of their intent.

    don't always believe what you think

    •  how do you regulate 3d party ads (0+ / 0-)

      without the risk of infringing on freedom of speech? This is hardly bullshit; there are tons of issues there.

      Let us all have the strength to see the humanity in our enemies, and the courage to let them see the humanity in ourselves.
