Is Your Vote Now Compromised?

As you know, the supreme court's "Citizens United" decision casts "corporations" equal to "humans" under the First Amendment to the Constitution. I will accept that as fact just as soon as a corporation delivers a baby!

Until then however, our votes will continue to compete with the political action committees, (PACS), and super PACS that provide billions of dollars supporting candidates of their choice...without transparency!

The Massachusetts Constitution of 1780 was correct in declaring that the body politic is founded by individuals. Our own Declaration of Independence posits that "governments are instituted among men."  Do you think that our supreme court justices are paying attention?
