Rush’s open letter to President Obama regarding the [un]Fairness Doctrine

Posted by Liberty on February 20, 2009

Mr. President, Keep the Airwaves Free

“As a former president of the Harvard Law Review and a professor at the University of Chicago Law School, you are more familiar than most with the purpose of the Bill of Rights: to protect the citizen from the possible excesses of the federal government. The First Amendment says, in part, that ‘Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.’ The government is explicitly prohibited from playing a role in refereeing among those who speak or seek to speak. We are, after all, dealing with political speech — which, as the Framers understood, cannot be left to the government to police.”

Rush has called Obama out.  The time is right to get the President’s stance on the Fairness Doctrine clarified.  His surrogates have been vocally in favor of this unconstitutional censorship in recent weeks.  This issue is critical to Conservatives and to the outcomes of the 2010 midterm elections.  If Conservative talk radio is shut down, it will help solidify Democrat control for generations to come.  The question is, will Obama vote “present?”

Gun Owners not Welcome on Obama’s White House Team

If you’re an unrepentant domestic terrorist, that’s probably ok, but if you’re exercising your Constitutional right to own a firearm, well…that’s something to worry about.
