Citizens United - Definition: The U.S. Supreme Court decision in which the Court eased restrictions on political and campaign spending by corporations and labor unions, ruling that such restrictions infringe upon the organizations' First Amendment free speech rights.
In other words corporations and unions are people and their money equals that persons free speech.
After last night's recall election win by Republican Scott Walker in Wisconsin it is abundantly clear that cooperate free speech (money) can and did buy the election.
Walkers union smashing agenda is so beloved by the wealthiest conservative that they backed him with every dime they had. The Koch brothers alone sank $3 Million into the race.
This is how it breaks down... Corporate billionaires donate mostly to Republicans and the unions donate mostly to Democrats. Walkers agenda was to decimate the unions therefore leaving the Democrats no way to combat the cash donations made to the Republicans. This is the Republican's end game.
To further prove the point all one has to do is look at what happened in Wisconsin. Walker dismantled the unions the second he took office. This in turn caused the union's numbers to dwindle and as a result so did their donations they make to the Democrats in that state. Essentially the Dems had no answer to the cash bomb dropped on the Republicans by their personal billionaire backers.
They outspent Walker's competition Democrat Tom Barrett by an 8 to 1 margin. $30.5 million to $3.9 million.
The result was a crushing defeat for the Democrat running against a Republican the people of that state wanted to recall just a year ago!
The right wing plutocrats now know they can win elections solely with their money.
They have their eyes on the prize in November. All they just have to do is drown the Presidential race with billions of dollars and the win is theirs.
Down with unions and up with Citizens United!
The GOP smells blood and they like it.
Bow down to our new cooperate overlords.
