USA for Sale - 2

E.J. Dionne Jr., the veteran Washington Post columnist wrote: ..."The Supreme Court's 5-to-4 decision last week giving American corporations the right to unlimited political spending was an astonishing display of judicial arrogance, overreach and unjustified activism.

Turning its back on a century of practice and decades of precedent, a narrow right-wing majority on the court decided to change the American political system by tilting it decisively in favor of corporate interests"...

What Mr Dionne missed emphasizing is this: this ruling also allows US incorporated companies owned by foreign interest to finance openly US politicians.

This Supreme Court, headed by John Roberts, is a Bush court for during his 2 terms as president he managed to tilt the court by appointing a number of rightwing judges including Roberts.
