Congress Moves To Destroy Netroots

Congress joins some 'liberal' groups in threatening Web sites and blogs that are critical of US policy

by Chris Bowers

With their attempts to de-fund lawyers, unions, and with their attempts to disenfranchise minorities, when Republicans are in power they consistently work to consolidate their power literally by shutting their opponents out of the process. Unfortunately, sometimes liberal groups help them, such as in the latest example:
//politicalwire.com/archives/2005/02/14/restrictions_coming_on_internet_politics.html

The Federal Election Commission "next month will begin looking at tightening restrictions on political activities in cyberspace, a controversial move that makes some FEC officials uneasy," Roll Call reports. //www.rollcall.com/issues/50_73/news/8142-1.html

"Specifically, the FEC is planning to examine the question of how Internet activities, when coordinated with candidates' campaigns, fit into the definition of 'public communications.'"

Restrictions coming? We will see about that. I'd make some sort of defiant statement, but I've already written enough to warrant a "visit" for one day.
