    As for the Kochs, the nearly one billion is not only coming from their pockets, but also from Freedom Partners, an organization they founded.



    So if you want to play child-like semantics, be my guest. But you cannot deny that the Koch brothers are heavily behind funding the next election.
    As are many others, on both sides, and that's a good thing. It ensures the flow of unrationed political speech.

    I would argue that Citizens United was merely a restorative decision, rolling back an activist assault on free speech.

    Yes. they sure do represent Joe Schmo quite well.

    With an unrationed flow of political speech everyone's view will be represented somewhere.

    So far Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who cares about the welfare of most Americans.

    It's sadly ironic that Citizens United allows foreign money to affect U.S. elections. At odds with the principle behind this case, wouldn't you say?

    That is your view and you are certainly entitled to advocate it. I think Bernie Sanders as POTUS would undermine the welfare of most Americans.
