From the article:

Reporting from Washington – Overturning a century-old restriction, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday that corporations could spend as much as they wanted to sway voters in federal elections.

In a landmark 5-4 decision, the court’s conservative bloc said that corporations had the same right to free speech as individuals, and for that reason the government could not stop corporations from spending to help their favored candidates.

The ruling, which will presumably apply as well to labor unions and other organizations, is likely to have an effect on this year’s congressional elections. Many political analysts and election-law experts predict that millions of extra dollars will flood into this fall’s contests, much of it benefiting Republican candidates.

Republicans praised the decision as a victory for wide-open political speech, but Democrats slammed it as a win for big money.

With this in place the US is no longer a democracy but a corporate state, elections are longer valid from this point. The people that will be elected are the once that back the corporations and will do their bidding as president.

The corporations don’t care about the masses, they only care about money and how to get the biggest amount of money from the people.

This is no longer the nation your forefathers “built” it’s just a corporation, plain and simple.
