The REALLY important political event this week is not President Obama's health care speech. This week the Supreme Court begins the procedure that will lead to a 5-4 vote (same as when they put Bush in office) to remove restrictions on the use of corporate money in politics.
The only reason the Supreme Court is considering this case is in order to overturn these restrictions. It will be a 5-4 vote. They would not be considering it at all if this were not what the 5-vote majority intends.
The removal of restrictions on corporate money in our politics will effectively mean the end of what is left of American democracy. It will finalize that America is a one-dollar-one-vote wealthocracy instead of a one-person-one-vote democracy.
