Impeach These U.S. Supreme Court Justices: Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, Alito and Thomas

Folks, there is no greater threat to your life, no greater threat to this country than this most recent U.S. Supreme Court decision.  This decision must not stand.  It is intolerable.  How many damn "rights," does a corporation need to have in this country?  This decision will annihilate any and every candidate not endorsed by a corporation.  Every candidate for every office will be destroyed by an unrelenting "Swift boating," of their campaign that will now have unlimited funds.  There won't be ad buys, there will be entire channel buys, entire cable company buys.  Ads will run 24/7.  And won't stop until the corporate endorsed candidate wins. 

You absolutely have to educate yourself about this and fight like hell.  War has been declared on you, regardless of who you are, or what party you belong to, whether you're an independent, or even if you don't vote at all!  It doesn't matter if you watch Keith Olbermann or Glen Beck, or The Cartoon Network.

The voices of all of us can now be out spent and out voted by one corporation because one corporation can outspend you.  A corporation can join with another corporation, or many corporations to out spend, and thus out vote you. A corporation can join with foreign corporations to out spend, and thus out vote you. Yes, even one foreign corporation can out spend and thus out vote you. Has any one of you, as an individual member of the public, ever tried to buy an ad to run on TV endorsing a candidate or a policy? Have you tried to do that on the radio, in a newspaper, on a billboard? It's expensive, isn't it? It's a lot easier to do if you're a corporation rather than an actual individual.

Can a corporation now run for office?  Can a corporation become a Congressman, a Senator, a President?  Can a congressional district now become the property of a corporation? Unthinkable? Not any more. 

These five U.S. Supreme Court Justices, Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, Alito and Thomas must be removed from the bench immediately.  They must be impeached.  The country is at stake.  The one you were living in before January 21, 2010, flawed though it may have been, is gone.  It has been replaced by a Fascist Idiocracy. 

Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post writes how this decision is not based on precedent, it is not even based on law.
Court's campaign finance decision a case of shoddy scholarship

"Somewhere, John D. Rockefeller is smiling. This goes back to the robber baron days," said state Sen. Bill Baroni (R-Mercer). "This is a rollback of decades of campaign finance law. It’s going to affect every campaign from fire commissioner to President of the United States."

There is precedent for moving for impeachment, for accusing a supreme court judge of allowing his ideology to affect his rulings.  This happened to Justice Samuel Chase in 1804.  The House of Representive impeahed him, but the Senate acquitted him, and Chase stayed on the bench.  Independent opinion is one thing, slavery to an extreme Right-wing ideology to the detriment of every citizen is quite another.  WE CAN IMPEACH THEM.
