Voice of the people: Saul Vydas

 

 

 

A corporation or a person? 

 

In a recent issue of The Dispatch, Bill Crawford reported that some people who contributed money to the political process are complaining of not getting a return for their "investment." As strange as this may be, the Supreme Court has added to the confusion by labeling "free speech" what until now would have been considered obvious bribery.  

 

It makes almost as much sense as calling a corporation a person, which apparently was done in order to permit even more such political payments. 

 

With all this going on, we still console ourselves that we live in a democracy where one person's vote is as good as another's. Given the pervasive influence of the money in politics, we are only kidding ourselves. How long will we continue to do this? Doing nothing is not a safe option
