One Reason I'll Never Vote for John McCain

Read this article by George Will about the crackdown on free speech under McCain-Feingold. It is absolutely chilling.

Can you see them applying this proposed law equally to the liberally-slanted news media?? Of course not!

And people keep ranting and raving about the Patriot Act.... They should only know what could be done.

Tying these comments together, isn't it interesting that the liberals who scream about the Patriot Act don't seem disturbed about the clampdown on free speech...because, I suspect, they know it would leave the liberals as those with the "voices" in the media.

I hate even thinking of the possibility of a Democrat President combined with a Democrat Congress...the Fairness Doctrine will certainly return.

As it is, I'm appalled that President Bush signed McCain-Feingold...I think he expected the Supreme Court to do the heavy lifting, and they didn't. Hopefully there will be further test cases and the Supreme Court, "under new management," will start to turn back McCain-Feingold, although Anthony Kennedy is a real wild card there.

Best wishes, Laura
