Free speech?

The Founding Fathers had a fear of corporations, and limited their role to business only However, the Supreme Court changed all of that with their ruling on Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and changed century-old restrictions on how much a cooperation can spend in federal elections.

When unions and corporations can spend as much as they like, it drowns out the voice of the people, and when they spend ten’s on millions of dollars, they do not speak for each and every person that is part of their corporation.

The Founding Fathers called their dream "the great experiment," and when government and corporation become intertwined as they now are, it’s not only a threat to the republic and the rights of the individual, but to "the great experiment” know as America.
