This is so much more an important issue than some yahoo congressperson from the State that started the Confederacy but I don’t see it being covered at FDL or here so let me put it forth.
This is a synopsis of the first day of Scotus hearings on ‘Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission—known far and wide as the Hillary: The Movie case’
Just as we are seeing the influence of money in the ‘healthcare’ and ‘energy’ and ‘financial reform’ (and most anything else) debates, this case goes to the core of whether citizens will lose even more of their voice in what we call a ‘representative democracy’
So read this and be scared. Very scared.
