    you missed the point--overturning a past decision does not necessarily conflict with strict construction

    You did miss my point. Completely. By miles. Just way over your head.

    There was legislation in place to limit the influence of corporate finance on campaigns. I'm a little disappointed that the supreme court just repealed it. It had been in place for decades, and I don't know how comfortable I feel having the billionaire rich having a significantly stronger political voice than my own.

    wrong again but I am sure you will smugly pretend it is so

    You really aren't in a position to do that

    Now answer the question

    so labor unions or groups like PETA shouldn't be able to pool resources?

    actually I wish net tax payers had far more influence. If I were Lord High Master of the universe people would get additional votes for every additional 1000 dollars in taxes they pay

    I detest the fact that politicians can pander to 55% of the voters by promising them the wealth of the other 45%--or as it is now the wealth of 10%
