    A) In other words, it does not keep people off the ballot. You declaring that it would is nothing more than useless hyperbole.

    C) I'm glad of anything that keeps people with views similar to that of Ralph Nader from running a viable campaign.

    You were rolling with A and B, but then you had to throw in C. It doesn't help, does it?

    As I have said before, I agree that it won't make a really bad situation all that much worse. I am sure they would prefer to exert influence w/o having their brand name revealed.

    I am not the only one. You better take that up with Newt Gingrich who has opined that this is a great victory for non-incumbents -the individuals who can muster support from those that have money- corporations. Of course, they always toss in unions as though unions had parity with corporations in the ability to spend $$$ to influence elections.

    Well that is a revealing comment. I guess you are the one happy to have some voices stifled.

    Don't flatter yourself - you're talking about stifling voices because you don't like them too.

    I am all for fairness. You are not. You cannot allow such lopsided power to influence politicians and elections and expect that at the end of the day they will represent the Individuals not corporations that got them there. As one of my heroins, Molly Ivins, was fond of saying; "you gotta dance with the one that brought you!"
