Citizens United will stay the law of the land and become even stronger.  It will lead to the most radically to the right Supreme Court in the history of the country and erase close to 100 years of progress in this country.  And if they have a Republican Congress with a Republican President it will make George W. Bush look like kindergarten. 

These people are not joking.  They are serious.
