    Yes, because money isn’t speech. Libertarians can save their breath on this issue because while I agree this country is a constitutional republic that seeks to protect the voice of the minority as much as the majority, it’s also a Representative Democracy where everyone from the homeless person on the street to the hedge fund manager in the high rise are entitled to an equal voice within our own government. The amount of say a voter gets shouldn’t be contingent on how big of a check they can cut to elected officials. The very idea of that is antithetical to Representative Democracy. While they’re at it, they should reverse Santa Clara v. Southern Pacific RR, because corporations aren’t people.
