The attack on our constitution and our freedoms are led by the spokes hole Nancy Pelosi. This time she wants to change the First Amendment of The Constitution. Pelsoi and the rest of the elites, the Left, the evil Obama, and the Democrat Socialist Party want to restrict what can be said and can‘t be said by business’s that disagree with the policies of the Left and those in power.

“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday endorsed a movement announced by other congressional Democrats on Wednesday to ratify an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow Congress to regulate political speech when it is engaged in by corporations as opposed to individuals.”
Pelosi etal claim that this will level the playing field by cutting out special interest groups and those evil corporations (as referred to by the Left) who will be given a special advantage when they give money to political candidates. The sad truth is this. The Democrat Socialist Party always point to the corporations as ones who are influencing the out comes of elections however in fact it is big money given by George Soros to groups like Media Matters, Planned Parenthood, the Politico, and many other groups far out spend conservative money. Now that we conservatives have learned how to play by their rules the Left is having a hissy fit.
Here is the link that lists all groups that George Soros funds.
The Dummcrats ( a term I borrowed from Mark Levin) battle cry is take the money out of politics and this will fix the problem. This is why these people are so diabolical. The McCain-Feingold was supposed to fix the problem however in reality this bill made sure that the incumbents stayed in power.
This is what the idiotic John McCain told us. The real truth this was done to murder the First Amendment.
McCain bought into the lies and thus we almost lost one of our liberties.
Here is part of the text from this bill.
“Reduction of Special Interest Influence – Amends the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 (FECA) to prohibit: (1) national political party committees (including any officer, agent, or entity they directly or indirectly establish, finance, maintain, or control) (officer, agent, or entity) from soliciting, receiving, directing, transferring, or spending money that is subject to FECA limitations, prohibitions, and reporting requirements; (2) soft money spending (not currently subject to FECA) for a Federal election activity, in general, by State, district, and local political party committees (including any officer, agent, or entity) or by an association or similar group of candidates for State or local office or State or local officials; (3) soft money spending for fundraising costs by any such committee, officer, agent, or entity; (4) national, State, district, or local political party committees (including national political party congressional campaign committees, entities, officers, or agents) from soliciting, any funds for, or making or directing any donations to certain tax-exempt organizations; and (5) candidates for Federal office, Federal office holders, or their agents from soliciting, receiving, directing, transferring, or spending funds in connection with a Federal election, including funds for any Federal election activity, unless they are subject to FECA limitations, prohibitions, and reporting requirements, or in connection with any non-Federal election unless such funds meet specified equirements.”
The Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that prohibited unions and corporations from airing paid ads thirty days before Candidates for Congress or President was unconstitutional. This in effected killed the McCain Feingold act.
This is what happens when temporary politicians make laws that restrict our freedom. Thank God the Supreme Court got it right. And this drives the Left nuts. These folks want it okay for Union thugs to have their say but not those evil corporations ( in the Left’s eyes). Yet it is those evil corporations (in the Left’s eyes) that pay the freight for their campaigns and expensive lifestyles.
The evil Obama and his sycophants in the media, the Democrat Socialist Party, the Left , and all those drones out there view The Constitution as something that must be overcome and destroyed. Once this is done then utopia on earth can be created. Except these folks forgot one little iddy biddy piece of information. This has been tried many times before and the results are hell on earth. Dictators rule supreme and “We The People become the serfs and slaves to the elites of society. And truly we are all in the screwed big time.
