The New Test for Truth: Do You Have Enough Money to Repeatedly Make Your Claim?

The Supreme Court just ruled that you can't stop someone from telling lies about you or your policies during a campaign. Lies are a form of free speech.

Previously, of course, the Supreme Court ruled that money spent on campaigns is a form of free speech and cannot be limited.

So it now looks as though the truth will be a product, like any other, and the truth that wins elections will go to the highest bidder.

I'll bet nothing could go wrong with that.

When Kerry ran against Bush 2, he was forced to spend most of his time responding to the false allegations of the "swift boaters." As a result he couldn't get his own message out, and lost an election he should have won handily.

This gives the Stamp of Approval to that tactic.
