GOOD NEWS: Democrat Congressman Floats Idea of Constitutional Amendment to Restrict Free Speech

And isn’t this precisely what we’ve come to expect from the modern Democrat Party, with its increasingly authoritarian bent?

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) says, “corporations control the patterns of thinking” in the United States and that the Bill of Rights to the Constitution should be amended so that the government is given the power to restrict freedom of speech.

“We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations,” said Johnson… “They control the patterns of thinking … They control the media. They control the messages that you get. So, you are being taught to hate your government–don’t want government, but keep your hands off of my Medicare by the way. I mean, we are all confused people and we’re poking fingers at each other saying, well you’re black, you’re Hispanic, immigration, homosexuals. You know, we’re lost on the social issues, abortion, contraception.

“And these folks,” Johnson said, “are setting up a scenario where they’re privatizing every aspect of our lives as we know it. So, wake up! Wake up! Let’s look at what’s happening. We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations.”

The modern Left is as far from classical liberalism as one could imagine.

These men are Statists: interested only in centralizing ever more power and in consolidating that power with fewer and few masterminds in Washington. These are the kind of men that our country’s founders despised and feared.

They are would-be despots who worship unlimited government, who respect neither checks nor balances, and and blatantly violate the Constitution at every opportunity.

I wonder what America’s breaking point will be? By that I mean, when will have the circle of liberty constricted around the average American’s throat sufficiently to waken the sleeping giant?
