Decision about speech should inform states

May 21, 2012
Gary Andersen, Lee Smith , Fairmont Sentinel

The U.S. Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United decision was about free speech. It recognized that spending for political advertising by corporations, unions or other groups constitutes speech, and the especially important right of political speech. Citizens United is the law of the land, and that ought to carry through to the 50 states, given the status of speech as a constitutionally protected right. See the First Amendment.
