If Hillary Clinton wins the Democratic nomination, it will be America's biggest missed opportunity for electing a president who might actually get corporate money out of politics. If Clinton wins, it will be business as usual.

The world is counting on you to make the right decision.

You think so huh? What power do you think the president has to override the decisions of the Supreme Court? Our government was created in such a way to prevent a single person (like the president) from having that kind of power.

The supreme court said that companies have free speech rights. That does not mean they can give unlimited amounts of money to politicians. That is still illegal.

Even individual people are not allowed to give a lot of money to candidates. They are limited to $2700 maximum. People and corporations can give to a super PAC (Technically known as independent expenditure-only committees) in large amounts but the problem is super PACs are prohibited from donating money directly to political candidates, and their spending must not be coordinated with that of the candidates they benefit. So it's not like the money goes to any specific candidate.

Companies can, however, have an opinion on subjects and are allowed to discuss their opinions. If the supreme court's ruling was eventually overruled sometime in the future, companies may no longer be able to advertise their products and services and could prevent companies like the newspaper or TV news from mentioning any of the candidates and nobody would have any information about who they are voting for.

Oh, and by the way, there are Super PACs that suppor Bernie. Remember, these cannot be coordinated with the candidate that they support so Bernie cannot state what the Super PAC does with the money or how to collect it or anything of the sort.

Try looking up these Super PACs if you don't believe me:

Collective Actions PAC

BillionairesForBernie

The following opposes Clinton so they benefit Bernie:

Dick Morris' Just Say No to Hillary PAC

Hilary Shmilary PAC

Hillary Project

It's About Killary

Just Say No to Hillary 2016

No to HRC 2016

Women Against Hillary

You are high as a kite if you don't think the campaigns do not communicate with Super Pac's. Bernie cannot stop a super pac from backing him but he can oppose their existence at every rally and in every debate. Dick Morris is 100% not for Bernie Sander and on that one alone shows how little you understand about election/ campaigns.

I didn't say he cannot communicate with a super PAC, I said he can not coordinate with one. There is a difference.

Who is Disk Morris? I don't hear much about him on the news. It's actually the media that determines how much time to give them on TV, on the Internet, and in the Papers and that translates into votes. Maybe we should prohibit the media from medling in the election process.
