As I pointed out yesterday, the downside for corporations of making it legal for them to spend unlimited amounts of money on electioneering, is that their competitors will be doing the same thing.

    One interesting point I haven’t seen you mention the law that was struck down was biased in that one group of corporations was completely excluded, those being media corporations. If you owned a newspaper or news network you could print/say whatever you wanted about any candidate running for office. While I don’t agree corporations shouldn’t be able to buy a candidate at the least the law was lopsided to begin with and should be rewritten so all corporate influences are limited/controlled in campaigns.

    Agreed, but that will be very difficult to accomplish.
