    d. In fact, Citizens United is a court ruling that exemplifies the problem, not the problem itself. Like a symptom for a disease, not the disease.

      ... that Citizens United isn't the entire issue, but I think calling it a symptom understates its influence on the larger problem of which you speak.

      It's one head of the beast (more grist for the religious mill), but one that currently has the best possibility of being cut from our culture. In other words, it's a start. We're not going to have publicly-funded elections before we eliminate Citizens United.

      We don't see things as they are; we see things as we are.
