Ball point pen on today's newsprint

Super PACs raised more money last month than the candidates they support, with the lions share coming from just a few individual mega donors and corporations.  Is this what the Supreme Court had in mind when they ruled on Citizens United vs. Federal Elections Commission?

Justice Stevens wrote in his decent "A democracy cannot function effectively when its constituent members believe laws are being bought and sold."

I believe Justice Stevens got it right on this one.

    I wonder how many politicians gained office without big financial backing. I know they exist but ad placement cost money. BTW, who is Romney? And will Christie run in 4 years?

    Hey VEe! Good to hear from you! hope you are well. When Romney figures it out he'll let us know. Actually I think he does know but it's too bad he can't tell the republican party without alienating the social conservatives.
