This is why I will never trust the American people again.....

Only in America ... Could the rich people - who pay 86% of all income taxes - be accused of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any income taxes at all.
This is not completely true since the same shameful attacks are going on many of the flailing Western socialist countries. But, we must think ans as Alexis de Tocqueville warned 200 years ago....
If ever the free institutions of America are destroyed, that event may be attributed to the omnipotence of the majority, which may at some future time urge the minorities to desperation and oblige them to have recourse to physical force. Anarchy will then be the result, but it will have been brought about by despotism.
As the current executive of the USA uses the envy of people to seize the productive assets of a few to 'distribute' to the many, we become a much weaker nation and people. The American government is being the despot that we all warn about in a systematic way and is slowly but cruelty seizing the liberty of the individual. Not unlike China, after the government seized private property in the 1950's, the people became coarse and destitute, its culture was also systematically attacked and the educated and successful people were humiliated and murdered. I see many parallels with 1950's China and the West today. We will be in for a gut wrenching coming several decades and today's recipients of government largess will leave the world much worse off.

It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood. James Madison
But the USA has become more than this concern, not much unlike China, where law is so voluminous and contradictory that folks there cannot operate without violating some kind of law. In China, they use this confusing array of law to rule by coercion. I call it "Rule by Law." In the US, we used to be a nation where we abided by the "Rule of Law" where law served the purpose of society instead of law perpetuating and strengthening government control over the people. However, the nation is becoming more like the authoritarian China regime and we the people of the united States are losing our liberty and our identity as a free people.

A Halo for Selfishness

And I think that there should be no restrictions on campaigns or campaign donations. The left like to quash political speech in order to control the discourse. As we know, lots of liberal folks are upset that corporations are considered 'people' and this allows them to donate to political campaigns. They are also considered 'people' so that they can enter into contracts too. So, there is actual reasons why corporations are to be considered 'people.'

Well, if government can impact both people and corporations with their market interventions, then i think that it makes perfect sense that corporations be allowed to defend the interests of their shareholders and employees. Furthermore, unions have always been involved in political matters and they too are now allowed under the same ruling to participate.
