Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

The decision to allow corporations to hide political contributions was the most disastous ruling in the court's history. This country was founded to be a place where the government was to be "of the people, by the people and for the people". That ruling makes the government "of the wealthy, by the wealthy and for the wealthy".

If that ruling is not challenged, we will return to our "roots" and become the monarchies most of our ancestors sought to escape. That would be an embarassment (at least to me).
