Citizens United vs Anti Free Speech: Update

The Left\Democrats have been in an uproar about the Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court that actually allowed free political speech the horrid McCain Feingold Act blocked. The Act states there can be no mention a candidate within 60 days of a general election or 30 days of a primary. What? It's a political campaign for Gods' sake, and you can't mention the politician that's campaigning?

The issue brought before the Court was Citizens United was airing or going to air, I forget which,  Hillary: The Movie, within thirty days of the election. Of course communist Michael Moore's propagandist lie filled movie  Fahrenheit 9/11 was allowed to air, and all it did was bash Bush.

The details of the ruling and the anti free speech McCain Feingold here.  Link to Citizens United here.

This is a vid of the President of Citizens United at the Republican Convention with a good update.  

The obvious answer to all this mess is to repeal McCain Feingold and just have full disclosure of who donates how much to whom. Let citizens decide.
