    So true. Democracy and expanding economic prosperity, a growing middle class, were on the rise for an unprecedented 40 years following WWII. That stopped in the 1980’s with the advent of trickle-down economics and is now reflected in Supreme Court decisions. We’ve gone from “one person, one vote” to “money is equal to free speech”. The irony (or hypocrisy) is the claim that this is constitutionally conservative. None of the founders would confuse money (a means to facilitate commerce) with free speech (the right of every American to say what he/she believes). Not even Hamilton, the money guy – founder of the national bank – would be confused that money was equal to free speech. (Sorry for the rant…)
