Image via WikipediaThe Supreme Court's recent ruling to allow corporations unlimited spending on campaign advertising puts yet another nail in the coffin for freedom and democracy.
It further empowers Goldman Sachs to control and dictate our political system, our laws and our freedoms. It challenges the very nature of our Democracy and begins to ring true of Fascism where corporations control a nation.
We are wittnessing the demise of the nation our forefathers laid some very solid foundations for.

...the recent Supreme Court ruling allowing corporations and unions unlimited spending to run their own campaign ads for or against candidates running for office. This 5 to 4 decision by the Justice's will drastically change the outcomes of any election and democracy as we know it.If we thought GS has too much influence in our government now, this ruling may just turn them into a dictatorial ruling power. If we don't stop this now, we may be lost for ever.
Understand also that the Federal Reserve is a private corporation and as such would also be allowed to wage advertising campaigns for or against candidates on local, state and federal levels. If allowed unlimited spending, the Fed obviously has an unlimited supply of money. They can create it at will and spend it - as they have - with no oversight or direction by the people. They are a private corporation!
THIS IS NOT FREEDOM OF SPEECH, THIS IS TYRANNY.
On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that corporations are entitled to spend unlimited funds in our elections. The First Amendment was never intended to protect corporations.
Protect our democracy! Free speech is for people — not corporations.
"American citizens have repeatedly amended the Constitution to defend democracy when the Supreme Court acts in collusion with democracy's enemies, whether they are slavemasters, states imposing poll taxes on voters, or the opponents of woman suffrage. Today, the Court has enthroned corporations, permitting them not only all kinds of special economic rights but now, amazingly, moving to grant them the same political rights as the people. This is a moment of high danger for democracy so we must act quickly to spell out in the Constitution what the people have always understood: that corporations do not enjoy the political and free speech rights that belong to the people of the United States."- Professor Jamin Raskin, constitutional law expert at American University's Washington College of Law and Maryland state senator
