SCOTUS Bends To The Corporations
The Supreme Court today ruled that corporations are not distinguishable from individuals when it comes to free speech in elections. What that means is that they have opened the door for some of the richest businesses in America to basically hand pick the Congress and the President. Its a ruling so bad that I can't help but believe some new legislation will be quickly forth coming to effectively overrule it. Still, the overjoyed reaction of GOP leaders to this ruling should put to bed any thoughts of them actually being all about the people and riding a wave of populism. They will ALWAYS side with their financial benefactors to the detriment of the regular folks in order to get in power and stay in power. Anybody who can't see that at this point is just a fool.
