    will fix the situation in the very long run, by curbing the money and restricting what can be done through gerrymandering congressional districts. It will take years, but the effect of income inequality paired with unlimited political spending has created a situation where the GOP is way too strongly ID'd with the rich for a majority of voters.

    They can't win a presidential election until they fix that, and presidential elections determine the future makeup of the courts.

    You will not be punished for your anger. You will be punished by your anger.

      The ones who think money is speech are going to fix gerrymandering and start curbing the money?
      Don't hold your breath.

      If trees gave off WIFi signals, we would probably plant so many trees, we would save the planet. Too bad they only produce the oxygen we breathe.

        It will be a different Supreme court 5-10 years from now. Like you said, don't hold your breath.
