10. Good point. Look at the current Presidential campaign fundraising data...

 

...where an insane amount of republican money is supplied by a handful of people. If we say spending money is a form of freedom of speech, it is definitely not one all American can exercise equally. Should our 1st Amendment rights be equally expressable by all citizens? How does this affect citizens who choose not to express themselves at all? What about corporations, which aren't really people, but enjoy some of the legal rights of citizens? What is a better way for us to handle this?

Thank you.
