Although I agreed with the Supreme Courts decision regarding money as free speech -- I had no idea of the impact it had across the land. I figured it was just a matter of deep pocket corporations, or the Koch Brothers, Soros, or whoever. Little did I know that States were creating laws to prevent any grass root level political involvement by laying out barbed wire, bear traps and other laws and regulations to stop any such citizen efforts.
I'll link you to the article and see if you don't view the Citizens United v FEC decision in a new light. I sure did!!
