I've said many times, and in many threads, that the case United Citizens Vs the Federal government is an abomination, giving the rich unrestricted influence to campaign fund raising, hence tying up politicians to serve the interests of the upper class. Unless that is reverse, democracy that we have is a perversion of what it should be - a government of the people, by the people for the people. As it is now, it is for the rich people.

The things is it's not really an abomination. It's business as usual.

It's business as usual, but now enshrined in the constitution. And that's why it's an abomination.
