Add this to the Citizen's United decision and you get:

Corporations want to pollute? Run as many ads as you can afford, and you buy a politician who will vote to allow pollution.

Corporations want to pay less than minimum wage? Buy a politician's vote, because dollars and free speech are the same thing.

Want to "abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States"? Just get enough Scalia's on the bench and we can make the 14th mean whatever you want!

Scalia expands the constitution where he likes it and cuts away where he dislikes it. The 14th is a big problem to his ideology, so he wants to pepper it with bird shot.

"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

in reference to:

"You don't need a constitution to keep things up-to-date. All you need is a legislature and a ballot box. You don't like the death penalty anymore, that's fine. You want a right to abortion? There's nothing in the Constitution about that. But that doesn't mean you cannot prohibit it. Persuade your fellow citizens it's a good idea and pass a law."
