WASHINGTON — A major ruling Thursday by the U.S. Supreme Court could change how presidential and congressional campaigns are funded, possibly opening the floodgates of money from corporations, labor unions and other groups.

We don't have a chance do we?
Great, I was beginning to think special interest groups were losing their power. Now they can fit more politicians in their pockets.
or...read my response on the other thread about this...is it one more chance for people to wake up and see that big money wants to run your life, and are they going to let it happen?
would you vote for a big money candidate or one that upholds theh US Constitution and Liberty?
its our choice...are we smart enough to make the right choice for freedom or continue to allow big money to control our lives?
American citizens have to be aware of scenario. They are less interested in political activities. They do not also care for economic policies of the US government unless it directly affects them. This is a perfectly good situation for politicians and corporate giants to manage situations in their favor.
Vested interests prevail everywhere but it is particularly in America where only few knows that Federal Reserve is a private financial institute. All other countries have a central bank owned by government.
Polls in my hubs about economic crisis in America suggest that Americans are not financially intelligent. Some of my research shows that they are not politically aware.
Politicians and bankers exploit this type of situation and live in a safe heaven.
Will American citizens awake?
Think! Think! and think!
Plutonomy and plutocracy are simply reshowing themselves....this is the way the United States used to be...
A 'reawakening' of sorts....
To me it bodes very ill for this nation....while it states that unions will also be able to give freely, unions have less and less power all of the time.....the last bastions of the union, like the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, are being threatened by both the war on terror and globalization....
this new ruling needs to be immediately challenged..... and where was the media attention on this case anyway??? We only figure out after the judgement has been made??
yes, most media are in the same pocket as the politicians...the big money pocket of handlers.
well people are waking up, and the citizens will not let their liberty go down the gutter with the politicians that can't seem to think coherently along Constitutional lines

I have been saying since I first got here.
There is NO LONGER any protection for America's citizenry against that of business and government in bed.
If you think you are safe? You're not.

What do you think of the Supreme Court "Hobby Lobby" ruling today?Should healthcare decisions not be between a woman and her healthcare provider? Why should your boss essentially get to tell you what medicines you can take? This is a slippery slope. Contraceptive pills are used for...

The Supreme Court recently voted 5:4 to grant corporations unlimited rights toward funding political activities. Should this sort of right be limited to living breathing citizens of the United States or should any legally defined entity have that right?In choosing your answer please consider that...
