 Freedom Of Speech: How Quaint
Sparticlebrane 287 posts, incept 2009-08-25

So what?

You have representatives in Congress. They are your voice. Elect them well.

I suppose we will have to agree to disagree.

You feel that you should only be able to donate to political campaigns of people that directly represent you, under penalty of being a felon otherwise. You feel that donating money to political campaigns is not "free speech".

I recognize that all Representatives and Senators make decisions that directly affect everyone, not just those in their districts. Thus I recognize that it is in my best interests to have people elected, whether or not they represent me, who are in line with my way of thinking...and I should be able to donate to anyone's election campaign without fear of the government arresting me. I recognize that giving money to political campaigns is free speech on MY part, whether or not they use it for payroll, campaign ads, or flushing it down the toilet.

I just find it amazing that you feel someone should be a felon, because they donated money to a candidate who doesn't directly represent them.
