  1. Interesting, Justice Roggensack says she is upholding the First amendment rights of voters. What she is really doing is upholding the rights or corporate interests and those in other states to influence Wisconsin elections and drown out the speech of those who lack corporate money.

    Which of these is more real, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny or people who give judicial candidates money seeking nothing in return? The answer is, contrary to popular myth, none of them are real. You are more likely to encounter Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny than to find someone who dumps money into judicial campaigns and does not expect payback. It’s called buying elections, the last two were bought and paid for by corporations. The justices are not corrupt, Gabby and Ziegler are right-wing and would be without corporate money.

    The problem is they never would have been elected without corporate interests drowning out all other voices. Is it any coincidence that both were put on trial after they were on the court? It’s all part and parcel of using the First Amendment to harm the public interest and fair play. But corporations have never been about fair play.
