    Will's occupation (writing on the news) is almost completely unregulated, and I'm sure that's what he prefers. If he worked in a mine or at a food processing plant, he'd feel differently.

    When I read the comments of the republican pundits, I have the distinct feeling that they have different meanings for the words they use.

    Like the word “people”, when they use the word, they mean only business. The other citizens of America are just some sort of breed of cattle.

    This nation was founded, created, and has been ruled since the beginning by businessmen engaged in the bloody competition of commercial dominance. With most of the blood coming from the little people. Conservatives would like to keep it that way and are trying hard to keep the voters in check.

    However, the technology and shrinkage of the world may thwart their plans.

    "Suppose political contributing were deregulated, which would deregulate political speech, the dissemination of which is the principal use of campaign contributions."

    Ah yes, because the main problem with our election process and our politicians in general is that they just enough money given to them.

    What a pathetic joke this is.

    Our politicians are bought and paid for. Yes, on both the right and the left.

    The last thing we need is to open things up even more. I would contend that the best thing for America would be to get ALL contributions out of the system.

    Mr Will, You have hit a new low.
