Damn. The Supremes have once again demonstrated their moral & intellectual uncertainty. They ruled that CORPORATIONS are PEOPLE - and as such can donate any amount of money to political candidates anonymously. Yes - they are made up of people - individuals who have the right to make donations individually. What the court has enabled is the transfer of million of dollars to candidates & parties without any accountability. This has given rise to the so-called 'Super Pacs' that can sponsor either party. What the bloody hell was the court thinking?! Where does that leave 'Joe the plumber' (sorry - I couldn't resist) with his $10 donation? Without a helluva lot of influence is an understatement.
