Legalized bribery

Am I missing something, or is our campaign finance system simply legalized bribery?

I don't see that giving huge sums of money to candidates is freedom of speech. It's freedom to drown out the speecch of others.

And fat cats who throw around large sums are making an implied threat: do what I want, or I'll drown you out. I'll give my money to your opponent, and blast you off the airwaves.
