STATEMENT FROM SHAUN MCCUTCHEON ON SUPREME COURT VICTORY

Today the United States Supreme Court took a stand in favor of our Constitutional Freedom of Speech as codified in our First Amendment.  First Amendment Free Speech enables us to support candidates for public office who share our views.  While I understand some base limits on the dollar amount of single contributions, limits to the overall number of candidates, parties and committees are nothing more than unnecessary limits to 1st amendment freedom.  The Supreme Court has reaffirmed the unconstitutionality of aggregate limits.

With the ruling, we continue to chip away at the long entrenched status quo from the grassroots – a status quo that has kept challengers, better ideas, and new entrants to the political arena mostly locked out.  Ensuring that citizens are able to contribute to multiple candidates or causes who share their views only provides further support to a system in which “We the People” hold the ultimate reins of power.

I commend the Supreme Court for their decision to defend our freedom.   The entire legal process is outlined in my book “Outsider Inside the Supreme Court” if you want more information.  Free Speech and the Political process is now more important than ever.  Thank you!
