So, Has the Supreme Court Destroyed Democracy?

Five to four: The Supreme Court says it's a violation of free speech to block corporations from spending as much as they want in favor of--or against--a particular candidate. Both agony and ecstasy from those who are interested in this bit of jurisprudence. Click on the title of this post for a CNN article, posted by a Libertarian, then comment here.

I've already changed my mind twice, mainly because I heard about this decision from Keith Olberman, MSNBC pundit. He has a way of creating drama that can be a bit overwhelming. I decided to get a few more opinions. Now, I think the decision is probably OK. Our president, on the other hand, disagrees. He's not happy!
