    Nor the Democrats. That would be morally reprehensible.

    Their Chinese masters prefer to deal with the Dems. Trump is too hard on them.

    Speech that costs money isn't free.

    That is called free speech. What has it to do with contributions to political campaigns?

    It does not say that.

    There reference is in who is free to publish political communications.
    An individual, using his/her own money is different than a political action committee using money they have collected from other people.
    A corporation since it is using it's own money is considered the same as an individual.

    It's called private property. Right wingers generally promote the freedom of the individual to do what one wants with it, without government interference. Does this no longer apply across the board? Did right wingers suddenly find the concept of relativism to their liking?

    so it's ok for a political party to control all information on the internet in your opinion?
