After reading the material on Citizens United v. FEC, including the articles demonstrating the decision’s impact, please place yourself in the position of a Supreme Court Justice reviewing the case. Write a 1-2 page reflection paper from that perspective, asking yourself the following questions:

1. How would you vote on the Citizens United case, knowing what you now know?

2. What changes would you make to the decision and why?

3. How would these changes impact the hyper-partisanship we currently see in politics?

4. What role should corporations be able to play in politics? What first amendment limits, if any, should there be for corporate political speech?

Your assignment should be submitted via Canvas no later than end of the day Sunday Week Five. It should answer all the above questions and contain references to the reading, properly cited.
