An Open Letter To John Roberts

Dear Chief Justice,

As you and your colleagues on the Supreme Court deliberate in the Citizens United case, I have two questions for you. Do corporations, labor unions and other organized special interest groups have too little say in the halls of government? Are their voices not adequately heard in election campaigns?

Nearly all Americans would answer "no." Most of the rest would say "hell no!"

The way you and your eight fellow justices answer these questions will decide this case. No pressure, but your answers also will set democracy's course in 21st Century America.

--Thanks Mike, for helping clarify a MAJOR issue facing us US citizens. We need to understand more and motivate ourselves to enlighten others here in our country concerning how we are losing our ability to determine our rights as citizens. -dg
