Limited liability, unlimited funds.

Abe Lincoln said: "...Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth." Our country has become a Government of the Corporation, by the Corporation, and for the Politician, thanks in part to the Supreme Court's rejection of corporate spending limits. As long as Corporations have limited liability, unlimited funds to contribute and lobby with, Democracy will perish. Thank you SCOTUS, you've screwed the American people again. Five of you need to go back to law school.

“If the First Amendment has any force,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority, “it prohibits Congress from fining or jailing citizens, or associations of citizens, for simply engaging in political speech.”

Get this through your thick heads: Corporations as an entity are not citizens, and the First Amendment does not apply!! Corporations have non-disclosure agreements, dress codes, and various other restrictions on "free-speech". Whose supplying the crack up there?
