Threat to Free Speech on California Ballot

Proposition 89 will be voted on soon. It provides some public funding for election campaigns and places severe restrictions on election spending by businesses. It does not however restrict unions from spending. Get it? Unions can plug their agenda but business cannot do the same. And guess which side of politics the unions will be supporting? One-sided election campaigns, here we come! And, despite the First Amendment, it might even survive Supreme Court challenge. McCain-Feingold did.

Discussion here and here
