Regarless of the constitutionality of money as speech, I am convinced that allowing money to influence politics is not condusive to a democratic society. If it is decided that the constition allows unlimited contributions to the political process then the influence of that money will destroy the value of my vote. It will create a condition of "wealth is right" just like the old saying "might is right."
Yes this is not on the same side of the arguement as my last posting. Showing my true centrist ideals, I have contradictory feelings about this issue.
