Since when are corporations considered equal to people, as implied in "All corporations deserve equal voice" (Feb. 16, Letters)?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the way I understand it, under the new Supreme Court's ruling political campaigns will be ruled by big money — nobody will be able to out spend big corporations — and so decided by special interests, with no room for the voice of the poor to be heard.
"Money talks," the saying goes, and now more than ever it will be true, with no limit as to how much money billionaire corporations can throw in to political campaigns and candidates that favor them.
This will leave the rest of us, common people, out of the democratic process that has set this country apart from the rest of the world for over two centuries now, since there's no way we can compete with big money, and virtually wiping out our democratic system of electing our president and other public officials.
Never miss a local story.
Instead of a government for the people, of the people and by the people, we will have a government of the rich, for the rich and by the rich corporations.
Goodbye, democracy; hello plutocracy!
