It certainly isn't the same as a bunch of like minded people getting together to lobby the county government to install speed bumps on their neighborhood streets.  What prevents a China SOE from setting up HQ in Deleware, bringing on US employees and buying politicians in support of their agenda? What is the difference between Hu Jintao or Wen Jiabao  and the CEO of 'Ultra Big Corp'?  What happens when corporations determine private ownership of firearms is not in their best interest? This is far from being as innocent as you make it out to be.

For now... I'm sure the 'right of the individual' to be anonymous will 
be trotted out next as justification for why we will be denied knowledge 
of who bought our politicians.
