    Well, I certainly think that campiagn financing is a big PART of the reason this nation is doomed.

    Why should I read anything at the link when your quote starts out with a lie? Citizen's United had nothing to do with campaign financing at all, so it overturned, at best, a few decades of precedent that restricted free speech.

    I fail to see how any sane person can see that as bad, but what else can I expect form idiots who think that corporations formed because federal law requires them to exist if people want to do certain things should be prohibited from doing the very thing the law requires them to exist for.
