Three Cheers For Citizens United - More Speech Did Well

Or as Ann Althouse pointed out here

......So much money is spent that no one is big enough to be big. Everyone — all the way up to Sheldon Adelson, who dumped $300 million into the ocean of money — is diluted into smallness.
More speech is the classic remedy for whatever is considered the bad speech in the marketplace of ideas. Think about whether more money can work as the remedy for whatever you're thinking is the bad money in campaign finance.

See Isn't it heartening that $3 billion was spent on the presidential election
