The activist right-wing Supreme Court has determined that corporations and other organizations have the right to spend as much as they would like to support or defeat any candidate. Corporations are not citizens, they are not given enumerated rights in our constitution, nor do they have the right to vote or claim Congressional representation. That's OK. The neo-con wing of the Supreme Court has decided that corporations can spend as much money as they want to influence elections. As a matter of national security, did the justices take note of the many US corporations that are dominated or completely controlled by foreign powers? Those foreign powers probably won't have the interests of US citizens in mind when profit is on the line. I foresee the mid-term elections of 2010 as the nastiest, crudest assault on the US populace ever, unless Congress acts to revise election laws. McCain and Feingold aside (and I hope they will redouble their efforts) even our sometimes dim-witted senior senator has come out publicly against the decision. Maine is a very rural state, and liberal interests can come here head-hunting to pick off senators at a tiny fraction of the cost of doing so in populous states. The Supreme Court's decision disenfranchises the voters of small states and increases the powers of states like CA, NY, OH, TX, FL... Sad day.
