The Supreme Court has become the masters of America. If you don't like their decision-making, then you are just another worthless revenue-producing insect. America stopped being free a long, long time ago. There's justice and then there's Just Us.

It just doesn't seem right that someone from OUTSIDE the area can dump boatloads of money to promote THEIR AGENDA and influence a local election.

It goes both ways, Eleanor. That is why the Supreme Court ruling attacks the very meaning of democracy.
The question now is who is buying the Supreme Court?
