Dark money is political speech, but whose money is it, and how do you know Supreme Court?

I would like to cover more than the destruction of a presidency on my website, but I cannot think of anything more important than what is taking place in our republic right now. A president who wants to turn the executive branch into a campaign organ on a level that is unprecedented in our history is big news. We have a large percentage of students who do not see a problem with a president who invites foreign nations to help him get re-elected (and maybe elected in the first place?). The republic actually being a republic is at stake; is this a country belonging to the citizens or someone else? The Supreme Court in the Citizens United case invited the wealthy and powerful to secretly participate in an outsized way in our elections. Who is to say that those wealthy and powerful persons who are secretly participating are actually citizens of the United States? Thanks Supreme Court for your limited wisdom.
