Saying "Stop Would Be Illegal

The Swiftboat Veterans for Truth have been on the air for a while now, and basically since they began, the Democrats have been insisting that there is some sort of illegal coordination between the two. Kerry & Co. have and are continuing to call on George W. Bush to condemn these ads and to tell the SwiftVets to stop running them. Now, putting the ludicrous objection about an illegal connection aside, wouldn't telling them to stop in itself be coordination? Coordination is telling the group when or if they should air the ads. If George Bush told instructed them to cease running the ads, then that would be a blatant violation of McCain Feingold Campaign Finance Reform. So, Democrats, please, just shut up and let people have the limited amount of free speech this retarded Campaign finance law allows them. I may not agree with MoveOn.org, but I do not begrudge them the right to spout whatever they want on national television. We cannot selectively allow freedom of speech, especially when it comes to politics. Political speech is one of the main forms of speech the first amendment was written to protect. When political censorship begins, so will America's trek down the dark path toward tyranny.
