Looking at the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision and subsequent related decisions from my perspective reveals horrifying implications. Their contention is that corporations have the same Constitutional rights as people. Furthermore, they contend that money is speech and there should be no limitations on free speech.
Taken at face value, one would think that the benevolent Supreme Court Injustices are just trying to extend the Constitutional benefits of free speech to every possible entity. Hey, let's give that door and that doorknob the right of free speech. The more the merrier, right? How about this pack of chewing gum that I'm carrying in my pocket? It's been silent for far too long and should have the right to buy political ads on every TV network!
The way I see it, this new twisted corrupt interpretation of the Constitution actually means that the U.S. Constitution only grants free speech to those who have the money to pay for it! The more money you have, the more political ads you can buy with no limitations. If you have no money, you have no free speech.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, according to the current crop of Supreme Court Injustices, free speech isn’t free, so get out you checkbooks and credit cards! The founding fathers would be so proud!
Have you noticed that there's no one on Talk Radio who speaks for John and Jane Q. Public? I want to change that situation. When I go into the studio and get on the air, I say the things that you've always wanted to say. The big corporate interests have their lobbyists, I want to be your voice. Just think of me as your guy fighting for your interests.
