Journals of Continental Congress - Library of Congress Collection

1 post / 0 new

I have heard Thom mention the transcipts and/or journals from the Continental Congress and in my search for the most comprehensive and complete I have found many. There is a series, 34 volumes, that are numberically listed and published by the Library of Congress. They are categorized by the years and months (e.g. Sept. 5, 1774 to Oct. 26, 1774) and can be found in the The Library of Congress/American Memory/Lawmaking Home. I am wondering if these are the best to buy? Amazon has this set listed and I am anixous to begin my reading. Could somone tell me if this is the best of the lot or are there other publications that are better? Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read and reply.

The Post-Citizens United Era.

This month marks five years since the United States Supreme Court made their infamous ruling in the case of Citizens United v. FEC. That ruling turned a century of legal precedent on its head with the declaration that corporations have a First Amendment right to spend money in elections. And, that ruling opened the floodgates to massive spending levels in our political process.
