I have seen many a blog post,op-ed piece ad report on the recent SCOTUS decision that smashes the campaign finance and advertising delusion we’ve been living under.
Many,mostly lefties, see this as corporate America taking over the politics of the country. Given the corporate angle said same lefties declare this as a great win for the dirty scoundrels aka Republicans.
Where to begin?
The leftards seem to forget how many activist entities, “charities”, and of course the Unions benefit from this ruling. They also seem to be under the fallacy spell still.
Allowing entities to use their considerable funds to buy ad time is not the end of democracy you fucking idiots! It is and example of democracy. Now I know the Left likes the American Public Education System, aka APES around here, and I think this explains their idiocy.How can you worry about this? Do you have so little faith in being able to make up your own mind? Do you really think the politicians for the most part listen to the little voices?
This is actually a good moment in the time of the common man. Much like a mutual fund finds its success or failure now corporations will need to weigh their interests. Don’t like the politician that supported something? Follow the money and crush them too. Like a position held by an entity? Join the growing voice and get the message out. The left hates this idea because more than anything the center right of this nation will be able to promote a centrist agenda with forays to the right on more than an occassional basis.
