McCain-Feingold Vs Blogs

As many of you may know, the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform bill regulates political speech during the run up to an election. This means a huge restrction on who may and may not engage in political speech during this time. And according to Professor Bainbridge, "the FEC may well be forced by judicial decisions in cases brought by McCain and Feingold to regulate a vast swath of internet activity, including blogs."

To quote him further, 'How hard is it to understand those simple words of the First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech...."?'

The US Contitution is being flagrantly violated by this law, and we should remember this when either McCain or Feingold try to run for office again.

And for those of you who think that I have never found fault with the President: I can't believe he signed this. This horrible piece of legislation should have been vetoed.
