Should we overturn Citizens United?Posted by: IndependentTruth
Citizens United vs. FED ruled that the first amendment prohibited the government from restricting independent political expenditures by a nonprofit corporation. This ruling has come under harsh criticism from those who claim that this decision allows the wealthiest to buy the political process. Do you think we should overturn it?
We should overturn it, and replace it with a law that allows unlimited contribution from individuals, but gets rid of PACs and SuperPACs.
Super Pacs are funded by people as well as corporations. Look, you as an individual can sue a corporation. But you cannot sue something unless it has rights. Thus a corporation must have some rights. its constitutionally unsound to restrict basic rights.
The McCain-Feingold Act violated the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment.
