People are People, Too!

Apparently, corporations and unions can now spend unlimited funds on campaign advertisements. I’m hopeful that soon the Supreme Court will recognize that people are people too, and have the same free speech rights as corporations.

Maybe, too, the Court will recognize that Congress may not limit the right of people to freely associate, and perhaps even pool their money in support of ideas or candidates they like.

  1. Restoring comments after migration:

    Beri: Unfortunately this rule, which has allowed literally wholesale bribery of members of Congress, will now allow the same groups to buy millions and millions of dollars worth of distorting and self-serving advertising for campaigns as well. You can talk all you like as an individual, but what really talks, and talks loudly, is money.

    …and unions
