In a 5-4 decision, the right-wing politically charged U S Supreme Court, “really” stuck it to the American people!

The U S Supreme Court January 21, 2010 (5-4) decision, that struck down McCain-Finegold Campaign Finance, allowed money to further corrupt our democracy, hence the result of the now damming out-of-control “SUPER-PACS!”

 

Brushing aside more than a century-old understanding and overruling two important precedents, the bitterly divided U S Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision January 21, 2010, the highly charged “right-wing;” politically charged Justices allowed Politics, rather than what is best for our Country, to make this most unfortunate decision. Using the First Amendment to the Constitution as “cover,” the right-wing court ruled that the Government may not ban political spending by Corporations in candidates’ elections.

 

The Dissenters said that “allowing corporate money to flood the political marketplace will corrupt democracy.” This statement became fact when the 2010 Mid-Term Elections were held, and it has become even more parasitic in this year’s Presidential Election.

 

Just look at the result of Congress Achievements in 2011, and if that wasn’t already bad enough, the GOP Presidential Candidates are using “SUPER-PACS” to denigrate their rivals with not just misnomers, but “out-right lies,” such as Mitt Romney’s Super Pac did to Newt Gingrich. Be sure and know I totally disagree with Gingrich on just about everything, but on the other hand, because of the Supreme Court’s January 21, 2010 decision, total out-right lies were fed to the people ofIowaon behalf of Mitt Romney. When Romney was confronted about what the SUPER PAC was doing in his name, he took the position that there wasn’t anything he could do about the lies that were being spewed, but now that he has come under attack inSouth Carolina, he is whining like the sniffling odoriferous he is!

 

But as the saying goes; “be careful what you wish for because you might get it and it would sooner rather than later, return to bite you in the ass!” The effort to overturn the well thought out McCain-Finegold Finance Bill was propelled by the Republicans and their cohorts. However, now that it has bitten them they are complaining how unjust it is!

 

President Obama issued this statement subsequent to the Supreme Court’s ruling;

 

“With its ruling today, the Supreme Court has given a green light to a new stampede of special interest money in our politics. It is a major victory for Big Oil, Wall Street Banks, Health Insurance Companies and the other powerful interests that marshal their power every day inWashingtonto drown out the voices of everyday Americans.”
