Last Thursday (March 9, 2012), the President signed a bi-partisan bill HR347, giving the federal government the ability to make it a felony to violate “No-Free Speech Zones”. This bill will allow them to make “No-Free Speech Zones”! Has this occurred because Washington D.C. is expecting a lot of push back in 2012 for the actions that they have taken to disregard their pledge to protect and defend the Constitution by the vocal Tea Party groups, who protested peacefully and left the protest areas cleaner than they found it? Or, is it because they fear the public display’s coming from the “Occupiers”? The President and many of the members of the House and Senate, publicly supported the Occupiers demands? Why would they try to shut us out?
If you have an opinion, I would be happy to post it here, but please contact your local representatives and local media to spread word on how they have silently abridged your 1st Amendment rights!
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Time to contact your federal/state/local representatives to express your opinions on this unfortunate, anti-Constitutional bill.
