Let's Be Careful About Election Campaign Donations: Some Personal Observations

Translation: "Yes" Palazzo_Braschi_Fascist_Poster,_1934


“The Supreme Court in the McCutcheon decision today  overturned 40 years of national policy and 38 years of  judicial precedent to strike down the overall limits on the  total contributions from an individual to federal  candidates and to party committees in an election cycle,”  said Fred Wertheimer, President of Democracy 21. “With  its decision today in McCutcheon, the Supreme Court  majority continued on its march to destroy the nation’s  campaign finance laws, which were enacted to prevent  corruption and protect the integrity of our democracy.”

Some thoughts from Mussolini:


Translation:"One for all, all for 'il Duce'."
"Fascism is therefore opposed to that form of democracy  which equates a nation to the majority, lowering it to the  level of the largest number(17)

 ...but it is the purest form  of  democracy if the nation be considered as it should be  from the point of view of quality rather than quantity, as  an idea, the mightiest because the most ethical, the  most coherent, the truest, expressing itself in a people as  the conscience and will of the few, if not, indeed, of one.(18)
