    Yes, it is compliant with the spirit of this nation’s founding, as stated in the Declaration of Independence, where the signers pledged “our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.” In other words, they promised to devote whatever was needed to the cause of independence.

    Today, however, the issues are a bit different. The Democrats wish only their union donors — particularly their public employee union donors — and their own political action committees to operate unfettered. Apparently, that was not even enough for the Clinton and Obama campaigns, which received money from foreign donors. What they fear is what this decision might inspire: For conservatives throughout the country to donate to worthy campaigns in unlimited amounts, finally to match the funding sources from which the left has freely but illegally appropriated.
