    Today the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to allow free speech during political campaigns. Duh.

    Obama's justice, Sonya Sotomayor, voted to curb free speech.

    I thought that free political speech was one of the reasons we had a revolution against King George. How quick the Liberals forget.

    No she didn't vote against free speech. If you read the entire article you would see that the issue was corporate donations to political groups which was catgorized as a free speech issue. It had nothing to do with the free speech for indiviuals.

    Regular Joe individuals do not have the wherewithal to buy big Ad spreads and they do not sit on the editorial boards of state sponsered media like the New York Times and CNN. By pooling their resources they can get some bang for their buck. That is why this is a free speech issue.

    Also, shareholders/union members have free speech rights that they exercise through corporations and unions.

    This is a BIG free speech case.

    Another slap in the face to the progressives who have been attacking our constitution.

    Once you put limits on free speech you are curbing free speech. Political speech is exactly what the founders had in mind. Surprise, surprise, she is a lib. If you want to curb free speech take CNN, ABC, NBC, PBS, and CBS off the air. They all have big money behind them too.

    I focused on Sotomayor because Obama was hyped as a "Constitutional Law Professor" and his nominee should know better.

    Corporations vs individuals...

    The bill was aimed directly at the NRA, which cost a lot of seats in vietcongress because of the 1994 AWB.

    And WHO is the NRA?

    Individuals, joining together.
