Dear Chief Justice Roberts: Thanks for selling my country to the highest bidder. I always wondered what it would be like to live in a fascist state. And in case your newly prostituted government officals are wondering, you'll have to pry my civil rights from my cold, dead fingers. Fuck you, and your United Corporations of America. Sincerely, Kate Brown, American Citizen (the human kind, not the corporation kind)

Don't forget Justice Thomas, who voted for this, but also wanted NO DISCLOSURE for corporations' donations.

The reason this is so scary is that too many ordinary citizens (and I was among them until recently) don't pay attention to what's going on, and only listen to the loudest voices. As a result, you have people who voted for Brown in Mass. because "he's a nice guy."

Exactly. This wouldn't be a problem if every citizen researched their candidates thoroughly before going to the polls. But we're programmed to not care, so we just go by whoever we see on tv the most. And it will mean the destruction of our country.

I'd be lying if I said that ruling doesn't rattle may cage. My husband is better at the Poly Sci stuff than I am and mentioned that the Supreme Court is basically saying, OK according to the law (which in my opinion should be changed)we make 'this' ruling.

However, Congress can make any law(s) it wants to, to put parameters around said ruling. Allowing or not allowing certain things.

That's pretty basic, but at least I won't pack my bags and move to a galaxy far, far, away, just yet. At any rate, between this and the health care reform debates, it's painfully obvious that not enough of the "salt of the earth" folks in our country are making themselves heard. "For the People" means just THAT, as you said.

"They" want to take our Country away from us. Well, by God, we take it back! Complacency is the devil, right now, and has been for a while, I think.
