Citizens Speak Out Against Citizens United [VIDEO]

Just because the two-year anniversary of the Citizens United decision has passed doesn’t mean efforts to undo the impact the decision has on our democracy have died down. Over the weekend activists gathered across the country to Occupy the Corporations and demand corporate money get out of the political process.

This may be the defining political struggle of our generation. It’s not too late to get involved and have your voice heard. Together we can take our democracy back.

I doubt SCOTUS will change its ruling... it is still the same group of deciders, but perhaps it is a first step. It is amazing that the ruling happened in the first place. That corporations (seen as persons) can plow millions (billions?) of dollars into their candidates coffers is just one of the things that makes our elections so unfair. The electoral college is another one.

I am a bit skeptical about this, especially in an election major election year. The losers will cry foul (Democrats & Republicans) and then we will be in for another 4 years of bitter fighting. Yea I know if the Democrats win we will be still in for it but they will have a so called excuse (take your pick).

The Republican Supreem Court will not strike down Citizens United. They will follow the Party Line. Corporations are their bread and butter.

Maybe the SCOTUS is trying to get some credibility back. It starated losing credibilty with Bush v. Gore -- close elections are to be decided by the Electoral College, not the Supreme Court. Citizens United eroded more trust in the SCOTUS. And if they rule against the ACA, erosion of trust in the SCOTUS will be complete.

Shouldn't the Supreme Court also immediately consider the constitutionality of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that voids our Bill of Rights and violates basic human rights law by our Congress and President's authorization to detain, torture and assassinate American citizens without a due process trial?

And isn't torture and assassination a crime?

Go Massachusetts in bringing the SCOTUS to justice. Those on the Supreme Court who supported Citizens United are not being objective as they should be -- it's too bad we can't remove them! What were they thinking??????? GS from Boston
