Chief Justice John Roberts

Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court of the USA is intellectually dishonest. He claims there is no risk of corruption unless a bribe is given directly to a candidate in cash to spend as the politician sees fit. He believes spending unlimited amounts of money even hundreds of millions on behalf of the candidate to get him elected is protected as freedom of speech and would not possibly unduly influence the politician to vote as the benefactor would wish. Cough! It is just thinly-disguised vote buying. Freedom of speech, my ass. Campaign limits don’t stop anyone from saying whatever they please. It is just that very large contributions, direct or indirect, cannot help but act as bribes, whether they were intended that way or not.
