Requested by Anon. From various articles.
The first few comments will be from before Obama came out against the ruling; the Freepers were more or less unconcerned with it then.
The “people” at DU are absolutely apoplectic about this ruling. They are even more exercised about it than their defeat in Mass.
It’s been a rough week for them: losing Teddy’s seat in Mass., Air America shutting down, and the SC ruling that allows free speech.
It’s fun to watch them squirm.
"Fortunately, five of the nine Justices of the Supreme Court disagreed."
Just a little clarification. Keep remembering that there are four Justices who don't care about Free Speech or the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Also remember that they are one vote from being a majority.
A great victory but still I find it a bit obscene that it wasn’t a unanimous decision.
I guess Obama’s thugs aren’t the only ones who can spend money on politicians now. LMAO!
John McCain with his stupid "McCain-Feingold" law and the crappy campaign he ran against HUSSEIN has done more damage to this country in the last 20 years than any other entity including the terrorists.
Thank God Hayworth is going to challenge him.
The following comments address Obama's reaction to the ruling (he called it a "blow to democracy"):
Someone born in Kenya, raised in Indonesia and Hawaii, wouldn’t have a clue about the value of free speech.
Hawaii ain’t America.
As if Obama would know what democracy was! Lemme give you a hint, pal, it does not mean the permanent, unelected rule of the Democrat Party - that's tyranny, not democracy. Stupid idiot.
a translation of the blue lipped elitist's truck hating words:
"Ahhhhhhhhhhhh schucky dernos and whoopy ew dad nab it....now the unions money and all of that money we doled out in stimulous meant to help democrats in future elections is going to have dad burned competition....I need a beer and a cigarette....get me to the golf course ASAP!"
Freedom of Association implies that people who are assembled can speak with one voice, doesn’t it? Banning associations of people from having a voice is unconstitutional on its face.
The Democrats have a free voice with the sympathetic main stream media plus the luxury of Union and Soros money. They don’t like competition. The SCOTUS has corrected a mistake. The federal gov’t can’t limit free speech.
I can't help laughing at Obama's remarks about a blow to democracy for this reason:
To me, one of the biggest blows to democracy occurred when the courts turned down lawsuits time after time that asked Obama to produce his Hawaii long form birth certificate and his undergraduate college records at Occidental in California and Columbia in New York City.
The way he is protesting, this is a great ruling for Democracy. A way to counter the MSM bias during elections.
You mean, letting entities other than the Unions spend money on campaigns harms democracy? Hmmm?
Tens of millions of Americans are still upset with Roe v. Wade. Yet the feminists and other abortion supporters sneer "it's the law of the land."
This recent decision is also "the law of the land" the President Obama, who raised his hand and said he would support and defend the Constitution, is obligated by oath to defend the decision. But like all radical leftists, he hates to be constrained by this magnificent document and wants to shred it. The Republicans need to call him on his statements and remind him of his oath.
True freedom means allowing those with natural, real-world advantages to leverage those advantages in the realm of politics and government.
People at the top are there for a reason. Maybe they are more productive, smarter, born to the right parents, or simply chosen to be one of God’s elect. Whatever the reason, they deserve to be where they are. No society that values its survival and prosperity seeks to stifle its best people in order to empower the mediocre masses — or worse, its worst degenerates.
---So wait, people who are the top are more productive, smarter, born to the right parents, or chosen by God to be there, which is why we need to trust people who are in power, like Barack Obama, right?
So the “natural born citizen” imposter believes that We the People of the USA should not follow the US Constitution.
Surprise! How easy that American people get conned by a Communist that wants to supress our Rights and Freedoms.
