    Ironic, maybe. But the Supreme Court opinion seems consistent with the principle of free speech, as long as using money is accepted as speech, which I don't understand. Why, exactly, is money treated as speech?

    Freedom and equity are not considered the same. Freedom of speech would be speech without restrictions. Equity, on the other hand, would assume everyone has enough money to speak freely. We are not all equal.

    This would be an interesting legal question - whether the U.S. laws must meet the condition of equity.
