    So now bribing politicians is an element of free speech?
    Who woulda thunk it.

    In the economic relm it is. My checkbook is the way I express my opinion that peanut butter cups are superior to broccoli, and Snow leopard is better than Vista.

    You figure when 80% of people come out against it, the other 20% wouldn't have the balls to actually make such a ignorant statement like "80% of Americans against Freedom of Speech."

    But that's USMB and the internet for you.

    LOL.

    You got to love the numbers when they're broken down too:

    EVERYONE thinks this court decision is bullshit.

    The folks on the USMB are gonna be shocked at how far outside the mainstream they are on this issue.

    You cant tell people or groups of people what they can or cannot say before an election. It's against the First amendment. It doesnt matter if 99.99% of people support it. It's still against Freedom of Speech.

    Again, people still havent read the decision.
