Because Actually Putting Politicians On The Payroll Is A Little Too Obvious
Lefty’s version of this idiocy is this. Corporations are not people. How dumb is it to give them all of the rights of personhood with virtually none of the responsibilities? Their very existence is to make as much money as possible. They have no altruistic purpose, unless it just happens to make them money. So why is the world should they be given the ear of our politicians. How in the world can normal people expect to compete with armies of lobbyists and wheelbarrows of money that will inevitably be thrown to the politicians. Thom Hartmann is a bit more eloquent than Lefty and so is John Dean, but then they probably spent more time writing their articles than I did.
This is one of the dumbest Supreme Court decisions ever…so far. And considering that includes giving the Presidency to the shithead in 2000 that’s saying something.
