We have written about the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision saying that corporations have a First Amendment right to spend as much money as they want to influence and, some say, “buy elections.” There has been an overwhelming response from our readers and 99% oppose the Court’s ruling. Most can’t understand how the right to free speech can apply to a corporation since corporations are not people. Since a corporation isn’t a person, there is no logical way it can have the same right as a person under the Constitution.
I believe this ruling will wake up the public to the dangers of an activist majority on the nation’s Highest Court. Nationwide, polls show a tremendous majority of folks disagree with what the Court did. I know that in Alabama at least one poll revealed over 75% thought the Court was wrong and that the ruling was bad for ordinary folks. I totally agree with that finding.
