The Supreme Court overturned parts of McCain-Feingold today

Read about it here.

Y'know, I've always thought that McCain-Feingold was horrible, horrible legislation...

...but I'm also rather troubled by the idea that corporations, labor unions etc. as artificial organisms en masse should have the same rights as actual, living citizens.

I don't mind so much that corporations are given some of the same rights as individuals. What bothers me is that they mostly only seem to get the benefits of individuals without the same level of responsibilities or penalties.
