The Supremely Immoral Decision of the Supreme Court

Updated on February 1, 2010

 

          So the Supreme Court or should I say the people who actually put George Bush and Dick Cheney in office have now opened the flood door for even more political corruption by allowing Corporations to donate unlimited amounts of money to their favorite politician.   This arrogant decision was a continuance of what is wrong with our political and judicial system which is partisanship to the extreme.

 

          This judgment or should I say lack of, was a decision made to boost the probability of one party dominating the political world, namely the Republican Party who are currently praising this verdict as a win for those who believe in the first amendment, but does this decision actually support the first amendment or does it open the door for our greatest right to be destroyed?  Let us examine this question.

 

 

           First of all, the first amendment is part of the Bill of Rights. The amendment prevents Congress from enacting laws respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, infringing on the freedom of speech and infringing on the freedom of the press, so you can see the importance of this amendment and how it affects each of us. 

 

           Now let us suppose you or I owned stock in a Corporation and one day that organization decided to use corporate earnings to oppose the First Amendment. Well unless you are part of the board of directors you have no say in the matter and thus your right to choose is invalid and your freedom under the first amendment is violated...So you can see, this decision does not support the first amendment, it destroys it! 

 

 

        

           In conclusion, now that the Supreme Court has made their supremely immoral decision, the political world as we know it is about to change.  Before, yes the super rich could use their own personal income to support political endeavors but now they can use corporate money to support or oppose religious activities, prevent the freedom of press or prevent the American people from exercising our greatest God given right...The right to freely choose our own destiny! 

 

Do you agree or disagree with the Supreme Court's Decision?

      I said it before and I'll say it again.A corporation is not,I repeat not a person.The opposite is also true a person is not a corporation.Anyone can google the word corporation and find that corporations were originally limited in what they could do,and the government as well as the people in America at least made sure that corporations were limited in what they could do,and how long they could exist and for what reason they could exist.
