This could be the start of death by a thousand cuts. Citizens United did not do the right any good in 2012. But mid-terms do not see nearly as big a voter turnout, and if we lose the Senate as a result, that could add real momentum to the Conservative movement. And that could be a huge problem for 2016.
The only way to fight the big money is with votes, so if the Dems don't amp up their game now — if they fail to energize the base for this November — the country and democracy are screwed. And gawd knows when we'll ever see a more liberal SCOTUS.
When you combine this and Citizens United — and they're not done yet. — with the gutting of the Voting Rights Act last year, the most apt analogy I can present is the Conservative justices drilling holes in the bottom of a boat called Democracy while filling it with rocks at the same time.
The right has initiated a two-front war on voters in an attempt to secure a permanent Repugnican dynasty.
