What did the Supreme Court just do to our democracy?

http://www.freespeechforpeople.org/

On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that corporations are entitled to spend unlimited funds in our elections.

This cannot stand. Sign up to protest this decision and protect our democracy! Free speech is for people — not corporations.
