Political purchases

Just want to thank the Supreme Court justices for their recent McCutcheon decision. I have voted in all elections for many years. This has required many hours of personal time, but I felt it was part of my responsibility as a U.S. citizen.

But because of the recent decision to allow wealthy donors to buy the votes of politicians, thus voiding my vote, I no longer need to waste any effort.

I’m sure that many fellow citizens are likewise relieved to know that their votes are also inconsequential because of this recent ruling. So, once again, thanks for providing the best government that the money of the wealthy few can bribe.
