Dear Commission,

The justification for allowing unlimited amounts of money to flow into the election process was based on arguments for free speech. Free speech does not mean secret speech. If these people are going to fund these horrible negative adds (on both sides) they should have to do so openly and nod shouted from behind a curtain. It's just rediculous and it is ruining our country. We no longer have elections we have mud wrestling.
