Whose Country Is This, Anyway?

The Supreme Court yesterday overturned a campaign finance law that would have placed strict limits on the amounts of money candidates for public office could both raise and spend. The justices seem to think that the right of free speech of candidates and campaign contributors is hampered if they are restrained from buying a public office. They also seem to think that the legislature of Vermont, whose law they overturned was out of line to suggest such restraint.

About Me

I love my country, that is why I criticize its absurdities; I love my freedom, that is why I do it publicly.
