Recently, the Supremes incorporated the new doublespeak NeoCon language into Constitutional debate when they chose to define "free speech" as a right of faceless, soulless corporations to buy and sell our government. This decision means that the voice of the individual citizen, which the Constitution was written to protect, will be overwhelmed by for-profit "persons" who can easily outspend them. This decision will likely turn the government into a giant, corporate-sponsored billboard. Since the Conservatives gained power, the Supremes have also defined free speech as encompassing the right to bear arms in public, thus giving any "nut job" the ability to intimidate other individual citizens and to change the tone of real free speech. These two decisions have much in common. What do you think the role of free speech is in our democracy?
The liberals are the ones in power not the conservatives. Not that it matters since we have not had free speech as long as I can remember. It has always been free speech for those who can afford it. The only thing different now is the government and corporations know we can’t change it so they don’t care if we know they are buying the government.
Any “nut job” will do what ever they want regardless of the law. With all these new gun laws individual law abiding citizens are now able to legally protect themselves from all the “nut jobs” out there
