The word on the street is that the Federal Election Commission has been ordered to regulate the Internet and require reporting about “campaign activities” of everyone on the internet. In the spirit of John Hancock, I’m going to write this big so no one at the FEC misses it:
I will not report. I will not bow to regulations. Should regulations be put in place, I will violate them, willingly and maliciously, every single day. You will not tell me what I can and cannot say on my blog. For reference, please see Amendment I to the Constitution of The United States of America.
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.
