Supreme Court Rules That Corporations Now May Dominate Elections

Welcome to the newly named Goldman-Sachs Supreme Court Building, named by their corporate sponsor!

In a 5-4 ruling the Supreme Court overturned the McCain-Feingold campaign spending law and cleared the way for corporations, unions and any special interest to engage in unlimited campaign financing. Voting in favor of this abomination of a court ruling were Justices Roberts, Scalia, Alito, Thomas and Kennedy. No surprises here!
This decision apparently did not take into account foreign owned or multinational corporations. Does this mean they have the same right to participate in our electoral process as American citizens?
Now corporations will operate in an even more politicized atmosphere than they do now and they will have the ability to overwhelm any other special interest as campaign spending goes!
This move firmly establishes a government of the corporations, by the corporations and for the corporations.
