“What has this to do with corruption? It has everything to do with corruption. Corruption breaks the constitution ally necessary “chain of communication” between the people and their representatives. It derails the essential speech-to-government-action tie. Where enough money calls the tune, the general public will not be heard. Inso far as corruption cuts the link between political thought and political action, a free marketplace of political ideas loses its point. That is one reason why the Court has stressed the constitutional importance of Congress’ con cern that a few large donations not drown out the voices of the many.”
Anonymous asked:Yo, I liked your takedown of Same Love on AVClub. As a gay rapper and rap fan, I was pleased to have a song that supported my rights, but I always found it to be very slow, boring and pandering. I look forward to the day that an actual gay rapper becomes mainstream and raises the bar for everyone else. For now, I will have to support Fly Young Red. Cheers. Question.. who are your current favorite glbt rappers? Do you know of any?
