    Here is the video that Grim posted:

    Does the Citizens United decision "open the flood gates to special interests" or doesn't it? Was Justice Alito absolutely correct?

    Yes, he was. I've explained this probably 30 times in as many threads over the past year. If you care to learn more, find one of the 800 post threads on Citizens United and start reading.

    I'm trying to understand all this campaign financing stuff and why you have to disclose sometimes and not others etc.
    I watched State of the Union.(CNN) They showed a Pro-Israel ad against Sestack. When asked if the guy would disclose who the donors were he said no, it's not required if the ad is about issues. I can see why someone wouldn't want to be identified as the donor of such an ad. If everything had to be disclosed, I think that would be stifling free speech. They also mentioned if Dems were donors to the ad they would want that kept secret for obvious reasons.
    He also said if it was an attack ad that said don't vote for so-and so and not on issues it would have to be disclosed. But since that ad mentioned Sestack, but didn't come out and say don't vote for him it didn't have to be disclosed. It's all very confusing.

    As far as this election goes, I think the dems are just being big babies and grasping at straws. Axelrod said Karl Rove was going to pump 50 mil. in before the end of the election stating that was some kind of unheard of thing. Then I find out the Dems plan on pumping in 60 mil.
    If they keep up the attacks on disclosures I hope they are forced to disclose the record breaking donations Obama raised in 2008 and force those to be disclosed.
    The Dems aren't getting the money this time because people are fed up with them. Even George Soros is sitting this one out.
