Senate Democrats have Voted to DESTROY the Constitution!!!

For the short-term goal of silencing the Koch Brothers, Senate Democrats voted yesterday to destroy America and everything She stands for.

Sure, on the surface it seems like a good idea:  Overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling so a few billionaires can't keep derailing everything the people want.   But that's just short-term, here-and-now reasoning, with no concern for the long-term implications.

In a word:  Freedom.

If these Nanny-State Welfare-Coddling Safety-Hammock Democrats are able to stop the Koch billionaires from purchasing elections today, who will they go after tomorrow?  Didn't think of that, didja?!?

Everyone who is rejoicing over yesterday's Senate vote to silence the Koch Brothers should think long and hard about that heartbreaking poem from Nazi Germany:

When they stopped the Koch Brothers from purchasing the government, I did nothing...then, when they came for me...

Good for the Gander, this would also effect George Soros whom the right believes controls the Democrats.

A Simple constitutional Amendment saying "Corporations are not people!" would solve everything.

Jerry: The corporate/plutocrat version of "Freedom" is certainly overrated.

Anonymous: Obviously overturning Citizens United would limit leftwing as well as rightwing donations.

Erik: Yup, corporations aren't people and money isn't speech.

"...corporations aren't people and money isn't speech", but corporate money buys elections, politicians, and laws.
