Obama also called on Congress to pass the Disclose Act, which would require any organization that spends more than $10,000 on election-related activities to disclose all of its donors who have contributed more than $10,000."
Anyone who is shaky on their commitment to vote for Romney needs to consider this issue. If Obama appoints a new justice, Citizens United will be overturned. It’s a great decision not only for what it did, but for what it lays the groundwork to do in the future. A return to economic liberty rights and substantive due process for corporations is really huge.
No curbs on labor union contributions, however.
Actually, Obama started attacking the First Amendment before this: his contraception mandate is an attempt to reinterpret “free exercise of religion” as “freedom of worship” (one almost can hear “and of anti-religious propaganda” appended after that).
Actually the Disclose Act is perfectly defensible, so long as it’s applied to all organizations, be it for-profit corporations, labor unions, PACs, . . . I’d actually like to see a fix to Citizens United that actually makes the reasoning in the majority opinion into law: since the right of corporations (and labor unions) to engage in political speech is derivative from the natural right of the individuals who make them up, require all political expenditures to be approves by the shareholders (rank and file) rather than allowing the management (union bosses) to expend the resourses of the shareholders (rank and file) to support their political agenda (which may be at variance to that of people on whose behalf they are engaged in political speech under the reasoning in Citizens Unites).
This man despises America and all it stands for. His Anti-Colonial mindset and left wing upbringing prohibit any other understanding of what this great nation is all about. He is as committed to the destruction of the present day USA as is a tornado to a trailer park.
