Libertarian Party of Michigan response to Supreme Court ruling
Emily Salvette
The Libertarian Party of Michigan applauds the recent Supreme Court decision in the Citizens United case that strikes down certain campaign finance laws outlawing political activity by corporations or unions. Libertarians believe campaign finance laws are restrictions on free speech and should be repealed.  They recognize that individual rights to political speech also pertain to groups of individuals however they may be associated.  “Besides,” as Libertarian Party of Michigan State Chair Emily Salvette noted, “campaign finance laws are just symptoms of ‘Big Government’ disease.” Her suggestion: “Shrink government back to its Constitutional limits so it isn’t interfering in the economy. Then business and unions won’t bother buying politicians’ support with campaign spending.”
