As you know by now, they're coming for the bloggers. Us who have the nerve to say what we feel about the corrupt, inane, impotent bastards that allegedly represent us, we are bound to be hunted down due to the Campaign Finance Reform Act.
This ends here. Now.
To any government force out there: you will NOT stop me. If you regulate, I will ignore it. If you fine, I will not pay it. If you attempt to arrest, I will not surrender. I will NOT be silenced, I don't care if I have to take my bare hands and strangle the life out of whosoever is unlucky enough to attempt to enforce it. You. Will. NOT. Win.
I am joining the insurrection.
I am also sending, courtesy of DownsizeDC.org, a final warning to those who would dare abridge our rights. The text below, a letter to both of my state's US senators and the House Rep. of my district is of that. Since they all happen to be Republicans, I made sure to dig into them in a particular manner:
I understand that a federal judge has ordered the FEC to craft regulations controlling individual political activity on the Internet. This decision is a direct consequence of BCRA. I urge you to take action today to repeal BCRA.
In case you have forgotten it since taking office, here's the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
When it says "no law", it means NO LAW. There is no authority whatsoever for such regulation as the campaign finance reform act has foisted on us.
I believe you are a Republican, yes? I know the mantra: "limited government", "upholding the constitution", "personal responsibility". If your party is relevant at all to modern day america, you will live by your words and move to relegate this obvious affront to Republican ideals and freedom itself to the ash heap of history. The Republican Party allowing ridiculous legislation like this to slide past is symptomatic of the reason why many who would otherwise be Republicans are not. Either earn our confidence and honor your oaths of office, or do the next honorable thing: resign.
BTW: from this point on, any past statements made even remotely favorable to John McCain in any way whatsoever are null and void. No one who has brought on such hell is worthy of even being called a man, much less a US Senator.
