ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas's landmark decision calling for the total elimination of individual contribution caps in financing political campaigns. Thomas says that campaign finance laws are not in accordance with the U.S. Constitution First Amendment. According to appellate advocate Tom Goldstein, Thomas is willing to put at stake his position by positing himself outside the mainstream.
