    Excellent historical review of Citizens United and the aftermath.

    If you're fed-up with our plutocracy in the U.S., you will feel at home reading this account. Jeffrey Clements puts the legalese of Citizens United into everyday language and with a command of the history of and following its passage. A great read for those looking for an inside look at some of the deficiencies of our Constitution and how to correct them.

    Citizens United, the 2010 US Supreme Court ruling that enables corporations to spend unlimited amounts to support political candidates, is a watershed event in US legal history. Liberals believe the ruling represents a blatant conservative power grab. Conservatives hold that free speech should apply to corporations as it does to human beings. Lawyer and political activist Jeffrey D. Clements, a former Massachusetts assistant attorney general, founded Free Speech for People, a group seeking to invalidate Citizens United. Clements argues that this ruling, which allows corporations to lobby year-round and to buy unlimited election-year advertising, is antithetical to American democracy. Although the views expressed are those of the author alone, getAbstract regards Clements’s book as timely material for the citizens of the United States and Europe, where similar issues are under debate. It is sure to provoke discussion and, most likely, an equally passionate conservative defense.

    enlightening for all who want to know what goes on in the U.S.A.

    I was shocked and angry to learn how powerless the ordinary citizen is vs. big business and corporate power. It is disturbing what little power the FDA.,environment control,our judicial system exercises against the strong lobbyist for big corporations. This book has enlightened me as to what really is happening in America.
