    Schumer represents everything wrong with our Government. Why do people keep voting for that tool? He's been in Congress far too long. It's time for him to go.

    It was an extremely bad decision. There goes any attempt at all at true campaign finance reform. Although this particular decision doesn't do it, yet, it opens the door to allow for unlimited campaign contributions by corporations. Washington DC will need to build another beltway just to hold all the lobbyists who will control every single lawmaker in Washington. Elections will eventually become just for show.

    Elections can never be for show as long as the citizens have a vote.

    There are other ways to get the word out now besides TV and newspaper adds, big money buys on TV I don't have the impact they once did.

    Take Mass for example, coakly flooded TV with adds the last week, and her numbers went DOWN.

    The abilty to 'buy' elections is not as it was.

    "Activist judges" don't mean liberal judges anymore. This decision was quite obviously skewed to favor big business over you and me, the electorate. It was a slap in the face of our so-called "independence" in a democratic republic.

    Well, that is a poor ruling. I don't think it is un-American, but it sure is pro corruption.
