I don’t think I can put it any better than this open letter my brother wrote to our activist, Conservative Supreme Court……..
Chief Justice Roberts
In light of the recent ruling with regards to Campaign Financing, and as an extremely concerned American Citizen, I would respectfully like to have the following presented to the Court for consideration.
It is clear that this activist ruling has abandoned all hope of a fair impartial Court and has rather split it into a Partisan battlefield. This is a disservice to the people of the United States of America and the democratic process we all hold so dear.
I would ask the following of the majority:
Does a Corporation receive an election ballot? Is a Corporation on the voter registration? Can a Corporation be called for Jury Duty?
How then, can we consider a Corporation to be an INDIVIDUAL with freedom of Speech relating to electioneering and political INFLUENCE? Indeed, a Corporation is guilty of massive SUPRESSION of speech! It is made up of hundreds of individual employees. Are we going to take a poll of all those employees and place financial influence where the MAJORITY chooses it to go? After all, would that not be the “DEMOCRATIC” way?! Hardly!
The influence will go where only the MINORITY Board of Directors and owners (who often are not even American Citizens and have no CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to be influencing our political system,) choose it to go…most likely in direct opposition to the will of the MAJORITY! This is HARDLY DEMOCRACY!
Let us not forget that DEMOCRACY comes from the Greek, “Demos” the PEOPLE. Last time I checked, we’re not living in a CORPOCRACY! I urge the Court to reverse its dangerous decision which has put us on the slippery slope to a systematic demolition of our democratic process!
Only connect, my friends!
