The Federal Election Commission has postponed a long-anticipated decision on whether to apply the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform law to political speech on the Internet.

It appeared that FEC Commissioner Michael Toner wanted to give Congress a chance to pass the Online Freedom of Speech Act proposed by Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling.

But late Wednesday afternoon, the House Rules Committee passed on the opportunity by failing to report Hensarling’s bill out of committee for debate on the House floor.

 Not with out a fight and not with out a constitutional amendment

Bill of Rights

 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.

The way I read this is, congress can not establish a religion, or keep me from worshiping whom or what ever I wish. Congress can not make up laws stiffeling my right to speak out against any thing, nor can they tell the press what to or not to say. Congress can not prohibit me from getting to gather with others for any reason, as long as it's peaceful. And I have every right to bitch about the government, the shady deal, oppressive laws, and the dammed ass holes in congress making the asinine decisions. Any time any place, especially before an election, I don't want the same ass holes in office next time around. The only qualifier in the First Amendment is the word "peaceably", nothing about how, when or with whom.
