Money is Not Speech

The Supreme Court was wrong to declare that “money is a form of speech.” This violates the “one man, one vote” spirit of our experiment in self-government. If money is speech, those with many dollars have more speech than those who have only one.

Speech is speech, it is nothing else.

Money on the other hand is not speech, rather it is: power, the root of all evil, something that cannot buy happiness or health, something you can’t serve and serve god also. Money is an enabler, a medium of exchange, not a thing in itself. In itself it is worthless.

Can you imagine the Founding Fathers creating an amendment to the Bill of Rights that said “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of money. . . ?” Money is regulated up the yin-yang; if it is speech we are making myriad laws restricting free speech.

If people with money want to speak, they should speak, not spend copious amounts of their money to say things for them (while hiding behind curtains like the Wizard of Oz).

If the Supreme Court won’t repent, we need to outlaw this foolishness.

If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.” ― Dorothy Parker


  1. President Obama used the IRS to oppress his political opposition.

    This is the first time in the history of political corruption that a politician oppressed the free speech of average citizens.

    Before President Obama dirty tricks were reserved for members of the ruling and political classes.

    They were never used against average citizens.

    The reason for this oppression was to cut off donations.

    A powerful Democrat once said, “Money is the mother’s milk of politics.” Google it. You’ll see.

    Clearly, President Obama through his own corrupt practices has proven that the money is speech and that the Supreme Court ruled correctly.

    So the question is, “When are Democrat voters going to hold their own leaders to the same standard of honesty as they do the GOP?”

      • Steve,

        It is the profound and fervent wish of all fascists that the opposition be silenced.

        Why can’t you people actually argue a point instead of resorting to childish personal insults?

          • Steve,

            The fascist should refrain from pilfering the intelligence of great minds.

            It only makes him look more stupid.

            You don’t argue because you can’t.

            You favor corruption, oppression and any dirty trick to silence your opposition.

            And since you can’t do any of that to me, you’re left with childish insults.

            You should be ashamed of yourself.
