So, when people say, "Money isn't speech" they actually mean they didn't want Citizens United to spend the money to make the movie.
Somehow somebody is going to be stopped from spending money to speak.

In a broader sense, an excellent mode to illuminate the doctrine are the civil rights laws. The initial cases were easy to adjudicate actually because the laws weren't facially neutral. They expressly discriminated against African-Americans. After segregation fell, the result was that states had to start writing facially neutral statutes. Of course the problem is that many of those statutes were still made with discriminatory intent, ie. they had a disparate impact. Roundabout discrimination is still discrimination in the same manner that roundabout censoring still infringes on your right to free speech.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.
