    So you're making **** up. That's what I thought.

    The reality is that there was no restriction on this kind of spending until the 20th Century.

    I bet yoi don't even know what the Citizens United ruling even says. It doesn't legalize outside groups to coordinate with political campaigns.

    So, no one outside of political campaigns should be allowed to participate in political speech?

    What the frig are you on about. What does that have to do with this discussion.

    Are you claiming that the SC is not capable of erring?

    Are you claiming that the Legislature can't wright an Amendment if it chooses and that it can't pass? Give me a break. Do you simply have to troll every thread aimlessly and nonsensically.

    I'm pointing out that The Constitution limits the power of the government. It doesn't limit the rights of the people. IOW, you can't pass an amendment abridging free speech.

    Are you claiming that the Legislature can't wright an Amendment if it chooses...
    Not without 2/3 approval of the House and the Senate and 3/4 approval of the states it can't.

    You can pass an Amendment that covers the largest and more idiotic aspect of CU, that being that a Corporation should enjoy the Rights and privileges of a Citizen.
