In Citizens United v. FEC the Supreme Court rejected the idea that the government may determine whose speech is worthy of protection under the First Amendment.  As a result of the decision, individuals, small businesses, corporations, labor unions and non-profit organizations may all engage in political speech.  It is not the bailiwick of government bureaucrats […]
