ajm3s: Let me get this straight, because the Constitution does not specifically prohibit the use of dollars to get ones message across, that would be free speech? Come on, that gives a rich man far more enfluence then any "small man". You honestly believe that was the intent of the founding fathers? Do you think they never considered the moral implications of that arrangment? I thought you were a religious man. Using great sums of money to support a Senator in his effort to gain office certainly brings about the question of graft and bribary and enfluence peddling on the part of the Senator. Not to mention all the job offers they get upon retirement. Now, multiply that by 100 Senators, we have corruption on a great scale. Was it the founders intent to develop a corrupt government from the git go? Did they honestly intend candidates for public office, spend 30 to 40 percent of their time in office begging on bended to knee to rich people for money so that they may give power to their benefactor and not be vulnerable to making decisions that were not in the best interest of the general good? What kind of people would these be? This is ALL the people's business, not just the business of the rich and well off. This is not about stopping the wealthy from using their right to vote. This is about stopping them from buying influence, practicing legalized graft and bribary? It has nothing to do with free speech. The Supremes have legalized the crimes and the term shake down; they dressed it up to look like free speech and you bought it. You people (the right) need to leave our consititution and our government alone. We who were brought up to understand the difference between right and wrong resent your efforts to change our country. It is the best in the world and doesn't need your warped ideas.
