    Gotta say, I never thought I would see the day the NYT got an election speech issue right.

    It's not the NYT. It's an op-ed by a Libertarian. :D

    His reasoning is sound.

    I am fine with practically anyone who lives here using their cash to voice their political opinion as long as it is not anonymous, it is the secret money that erodes our collective voice.

    The NY Times just loves Foreign Cash pouring into U.S. Elections...But only if it's pouring into their Democratic Party.

    Foreign money doesn't vote in U.S. elections. People stupid enough to listen to advertisements bought with foreign money do.
