A bit on Citizens United and SpeechNOW.org

More for today's discussion.

Both are interest groups, and both used the courts to expand their ability to spend money on the political process by successfully arguing to the court the existing limits on expenditures violates free speech. Campaign spending equals speech, and speech that is funded by corporate or union sources are the same as speech that comes form humans.

We will walk through these:

- Wikipedia: SpeechNOW.org v. FEC.
