    Black and white again? Disagreeing with Stevens vote and opinion does not equate disagreeing on a solution he later proposed as a way of remedying a crappy outcome. I can and do support the Citizens United ruling because of Constitutional disagreement with Stevens over the degree of the states interest. I'd rather err on the side of the speech than the side of regulation there.

    There is a way out as there has always been and Stevens could not fix it as a lone Justice: amend the Constitution. It's difficult work, but we need to get back to basics in America

    Ok, so how do you, personally, want to see the proposed Amendment worded?

    I support Stevens' proposal. He wrote one out that people are free to embrace or alter.
