    It costs money to keep our nation free from despots and from people inside and outside that want to destroy our form of government for the people and by the people.

    The new equation the Supreme Court of the United States of America through a wrench into the situation and history by allowing a continual flow of money coming from all of the above. Candidates had an interest in winning and were directly responsible for their ads.

    Now anyone, even a foreign government can advertise, indirectly for a candidate that they can use to weaken our ability, economically, defensively, offensively, psychologically, emotionally, even spiritual to tear our country down.

    I don't think the Constitution of the United States of America signers and founders ever thought that our politics of elections would come down to this mess.

    Have we sold the farm to outside interests? Who controls our destiny with the media choosing their type of candidate and President for 4-years and gives him every opportunity without questioning any of his decisions?

    We are being led down the crimson path. Our military before 1776 to the present have given their lives for freedom, liberty and the country we love.

    The amount of money being spent by various groups on all sides to purchase our leaders is obscene.

    Citizens United MUST be overturned. Campaign finance reform with teeth MUST be passed.

    How about Senator Hatch's 12 million campaign that was not needed?
