Corporations/Unions have the same rights(freespeech) as an individual

...in funding federal campaigns as long as they do it independently of candidates own campaign "organizations."
After centuries of precedent(the other way) that's what SCOTUS SAY'S.

What do you think?
I don't think precedent ALWAYS should be the deciding factor. Generally yes, always no.
I think this ruling benefits big $$$.
I think the corp & unions have enough $$$ to smash the individual.

 How is that fair to B ruled by DC, and .... C&U.
But listen, the lobbyists will get their way(except 4 tom delay). They have the $$$ from corp & unions, so they'll get over no matter what the supreme-less court rules.

Ruled by private interest. What's that sound like?





Or did I miss something.

Free speech? Money is what talks, and it ain't free. I say, put your money where your mouth is.

Oh...

I'd put something else in a peeps mouth that misuse $$$ to hurt or harm. Or to buy an election,etc. Somehow al-gore comes to mind. The Billy Sol Estes of the millennium.
