Ms Clinton's Four Big Fights

TRIGGER WARNING:  Mocking of those who would suppress ideas different from their own.

For John, BLUFIn this campaign for president we need to ask the "then what" questions.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Thanks to The New York Daily News, here is where Ms Clinton outlines her "four big fights".  One of them is to overthrow Citizens United v FEC, in an effort to suppress free speech.  After corporate speech, what next?  Incidentally, this is what George Will was referring to in his speech at the first annual Disinvitation Dinner.

File repeal of Citizen's United under the heading of "Blind (and profoundly corrupt) Squirrel Finds An Important Legislative Nut".

"Corporate Speech"? Are you serious? You feel comfortable affirming preferential legal treatment, normally reserved to We The People, to anyone, citizen or alien or foreigner, with money? At the very least it dilutes the voice of actual citizens. At its worst, it's the death knell of representative democracy, and the birth of an outright oligarchy.

Stateless money is a serious problem in this world, and the extent to which the US sells itself out to it will be the measure of how quickly we're overcome. It's remarkable how the "Patriotism" party is so adamantly in favor of selling out to foreign interests, as if putting any sort of restriction on non-citizens (with money) needs to be a crime.

We all know how these people feel about non-citizens without money.

Let's just have a little consistency, please.
