This is all the reason anyone needs to oppose John McCain for any public office. He does not believe in fundamental American values.
"He [Michael Graham] also mentioned my abridgement of First Amendment rights, i.e. talking about campaign finance reform....I know that money corrupts....I would rather have a clean government than one where quote First Amendment rights are being respected, that has become corrupt. If I had my choice, I'd rather have the clean government."
And how, precisely, would we know that it was clean if freedom of speech and freedom of speech have already been eliminated? Sounds like a recipe for Fascist Italy or Communist Russia to me.
I'll stand with Jefferson, the genius behind the Declaration of Independence and passionate advocate for a Bill of Rights.
The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to.
Those who would suppress freedom of speech in the name of "clean government" are, in fact, those who would impose the most vilest forms of government known to human history. Such men and women are dictators-in-waiting, seeking only the proper moment to impose their foul will upon an unconsenting populace, rendering free men and women into slaves in the blink of an eye.
