If background music were played when I took the microphone outside the United States Capitol, perhaps the theme should be the old “Sesame Street” song:
“One of these things is not like the others.”
“One of these things just doesn’t belong.”
And yet, I believe opposition to the far-reaching Citizens United decision is consistent with conservative views across the board.
Conservatives believe that true capitalism is the best supplier of human needs, and proven much more effective than alternatives from communism in Russia to socialism in Venezuela. We cannot continue to support a Citizens United decision that trades competition in the marketplace for the government picking winners and losers based on run away, pay-for-play politics.
