The outcome of this case puts too much power into the corporation's hand. It completely undermines a citizens ability to contribute to a campaign as a corporation can contribute as much money as they want! What this basically means is corporations have much greater power in financing a presidential campaign then the average citizen does. Financing a campaign can also be a major factor when it comes to how popular and the chance a candidate has to win an election. This MUST be stopped as it puts corporations interests first and indirectly intensifies the military-industrial complex, as the corporation who finances a certain campaign is certain to have guarantee's if said elected official were to take office. Please stop this before it is too late!

      Good going Brian!! If you get frustrated by this, you might try a more local approach - here in Little Rock we are gathering signatures for a ballot initiative which would limit corporate influence: check it out; www.regnatpopulus2012.com

      Because corporations are N0T people. They consist of like-minded people with collective wealth who endeavor primarily to further that wealth. Democracy is undermined when our elections can be purchased by corporations.
