FREE SPEECH – ANOTHER PROGRESSIVE ATTACK ON OUR FREEDOMS!
I read an article titled “Pelosi and Democrats Move to Change First Amendment”. The article was published April 21st, on brightbart.com and written by Susan Berry. This is another stealth attempt to change our Constitution while the public and the media are focused on the elections. Just another backdoor attempt by the democrats who fear they may lose their majority in the Senate in November. This would be a move that would silence the conservative press and other organizations that are funded to offset the Progressive political slant of the main stream media.
Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in Congress announced on April 19th that they intend to amendment the Constitution. This would grant Congress the power to control political speech of corporations, including those corporations that produce films, newspapers, books, and radio broadcasts. The amendment would reverse the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission in which the High Court ruled that the First Amendment protects the right of free speech for corporations as well as individuals.
This decision made by the Supreme Court was the action that President Obama openly criticized in his January 20, 2010, State of the Union address. In January of 2010.
Pelosi stated at that time that a move to amend the Constitution was part of a three-pronged Progressive strategy. She included that passage of the DISCLOSE Act, which would further regulate disclosure requirements for organizations that run political ads, and promotion of taxpayer funding of political campaigns.
Ms. Pelosi also stated, “Our Founders had an idea. It was called democracy. It said elections are determined by the people, the voice and the vote of the people, not by the bankrolls of the privileged few. This Supreme Court decision flies in the face of our Founders’ vision and we want to reverse it.”
Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Massachusetts), who is also sponsoring the amendment, recently said, “I’ve introduced a People’s Rights Amendment, which is very simple and straightforward. It would make clear that all corporate entities, for-profit and non-profit alike, are not people with constitutional rights. It treats all corporations, including incorporated unions and nonprofits, in the same way, as artificial creatures of the state that we, the people, govern, not the other way around.”
The First Amendment of the Constitution includes that “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.”
This is just another Progressive step in the process of making America a Socialist Democracy, which is the dream of President Obama and the entire Democratic Party in power.
What saddens me is that probably 90% of American voters already believe that we are a Democracy because of the twisted words of Ms Polosi and what used to be a free press.
America is not a Democracy, it has never been a Democracy and I pray that it will never be a Democracy. The United States is, and always has been, a Congressional Republic. Our education system does not adequately prepare our students to even know we are a Republic, much less explain the difference. They only teach that we have a Democratic form of government which is true.
How many of you that read this article actually know the difference between a Republic and a Democracy? My next series of articles will explain three things; One, what is a Republic; Two, what is a Democracy; Three, what are the differences between a Republic and a Democracy.
I would like to ask anyone who cares, to send me your perception of the difference between a Republic and a Democracy. I promise to include your inputs in the third part of the series. Hopefully we can educate some Americans to understand and help protect our freedoms when they vote in November? One more Progressive Supreme Court Justice will destroy over three hundred years of freedom. Obama has already given us two Progressive Justices and we may have three expire or resign in the next four years.
