Free Speechifying

While the rest of us are disappointed in today’s Supreme Court “McCain-Feingold” ruling not going far enough to eliminate the dissent crushing provisions, “blackrobe” at Keystone Politics complains for another reason.

Once again, the court reverses a recent holding. This panel has shown that it has no respect for the notion of stare decisis.


It’s funny how conservatives are concerned about the free speech rights when money and power are involved.

Yeah! Because a living constitution only flows in one direction! To the left! Political speech be damned!

Besides, there’s no do overs in Supreme Court decisions! None! Once decided, things just are!


Explicitly political speech was exactly kind of speech the framers wanted to protect. McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance “Reform” was a direct attack on that.
