Since SCOTUS says that money is free speech, then Buying Votes is Protected Free Speech? If money is free speech, then I should be able to allow the candidate handing me the largest pile of free speech to get my vote or pay me not to vote for someone else. It should be legal for a candidate to buy votes or pay people not to vote. Republicans spent over $200 per voter in the Iowa caucus on negative adds. They should have just gave me $200 to not vote for their opponent.
