Nancy Pelosi wants to amend the First Amendment....
[link to cnsnews.com]


The logic behind this:

allow Congress to regulate political speech when it is engaged in by corporations as opposed to individuals.


Is she looking for a new executive order???

(CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday endorsed a movement announced by other congressional Democrats on Wednesday to ratify an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow Congress to regulate political speech when it is engaged in by corporations as opposed to individuals.

The First Amendment says in part: "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press..."

Television networks, newspapers, publishing houses, movie studios and think tanks, as well as political action committees, are usually organized as, or elements of, corporations.


Oh yes, her agenda is clear...

Pelosi said the Democrats' effort to amend the Constitution is part of a three-pronged strategy that also includes promoting the DISCLOSE Act, which would increase disclosure requirements for organizations running political ads, and “reducing the roll of money in campaigns” (which some Democrats have said can be done through taxpayer funding of campaigns).

The constitutional amendment the Democrats seek would reverse the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. In that decision the court said that the First Amendment protects a right of free speech for corporations as well as for individuals, and that corporations (including those that produce newspapers, films and books) have a right to speak about politicians and their records just as individuals do.

“We have a clear agenda in this regard: Disclose, reform the system reducing the roll of money in campaigns, and amend the Constitution to rid it of this ability for special interests to use secret, unlimited, huge amounts of money flowing to campaigns,” Pelosi said at her Thursday press briefing.





Amend the First Amendment Nancy, REALLY?????

Like it or not Corporations are people and this would create all sorts of conflicts that they could use to shut all of us up permanently.

I bet the lawyers love this idea, I can see the lawsuits now.

No way she has the votes though, they will try this a different way.

We must all realize a sink a chair and a pillow are all luxuries of home and a soldiers helmet takes the place of all three.
