Court was wise to reject limits on contributions

After reading so many opinion essays and letters in this paper denouncing the recent Supreme Court ruling that says, in essence, “money is speech,” I decided that someone needs to write in favor of said ruling.

If someone wants his given party or candidate to win an election, he should be free to contribute whatever amount of money he wants.

Last I checked, this is America, and the First Amendment protects all forms of speech and expression; donating money to this or that cause definitely falls under that umbrella.

What this ruling tells the left-leaning liberals in places like the media, unions, pressure groups and so on is this: They now have to compete openly and fairly with voices from the right of the political spectrum.

Everyone should give thanks for the Supreme Court’s wise ruling.
