Take the Free Speech Pledge

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:12 am



Blogs are still being added to the long list of bloggers taking the free speech pledge to defy any unconstitutional rules passed by the FEC:

If the FEC makes rules that limit my First Amendment right to express my opinion on core political issues, I will not obey those rules.

A line has been drawn in the dirt. Will you take a step forward?

  1. I don’t think the Iraqis voted in order to be then limited in expressing their political opinions. And they did make a kind of pledge by action, the cost of/against the pledge being their lives.

    What is unbiased information or opinion? Why should only certain sources be given the freedom of speech? Are “journalists” only free to speak because they are paid, or because people buy newspapers? Why are money limits any different from effort limits? Why is our Government in the business of limiting harmless speech?

    The whole thing stinks – limits on contributions, M-F, Government funding of campaigns.
