    Pelosi: Amend the First Amendment

    (CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday endorsed a movement announced by other congressional Democrats on Wednesday to ratify an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow Congress to regulate political speech when it is engaged in by corporations as opposed to individuals.

    The First Amendment says in part: "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press..."

    Television and radio networks, newspapers, publishing houses, movie studios and think tanks, as well as political action committees, are usually organized as, or elements of, corporations.

    Pelosi said the Democrats' effort to amend the Constitution is part of a three-pronged strategy that also includes promoting the DISCLOSE Act, which would increase disclosure requirements for organizations running political ads, and “reducing the role of money in campaigns” (which some Democrats have said can be done through taxpayer funding of campaigns).

    The constitutional amendment the Democrats seek would reverse the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. In that decision the court said that the First Amendment protects a right of free speech for corporations as well as for individuals, and that corporations (including those that produce newspapers, films and books) have a right to speak about politicians and their records just as individuals do.

    “We have a clear agenda in this regard: Disclose, reform the system reducing the role of money in campaigns, and amend the Constitution to rid it of this ability for special interests to use secret, unlimited, huge amounts of money flowing to campaigns,” Pelosi said at her Thursday press briefing.

    How about we Amend Pelosi into another job?

    ratify an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow Congress to regulate political speech when it is engaged in by corporations as opposed to individuals

    She would not be saying that if she had more corp support.
    Last I heard the Supremes said a corporation was a person.

    Its all about the grand plan. They want to amend the 1st now to control what corporations can say and not say AFTER giving them rights as humans. What a cluster**** we live in. Once they get that passed then it will be easy to manage what we say too.

    Yeah just think about it, they could control what the media says since they are corporations.. What is written in the newspapers even, so much for differing opinions.

    Every time she thinks about the constitution, her eyes glow red, claws move, and there is an earthquake. The earthquake is God's warning ...not to think about changing the constitution. If they are going to walk all over it ..it has to be criminally like they have been doing. The great Judge will bring charges. Edited to add ..I think God is the Judge in the end. So I changed the word Prosecutor to Judge because Prosecutor just did not sound right. I'm in a joking around frame of mind..not angry. I thought it kind of funny about the earth quakes..because there were so many small ones lately.

    They want to change the Bill of Rights, First Amendment because of the health care(Obama care). The First Amendment says Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. Obama care respects Muslim religion! The Muslim religion is exempt from the mandate!! That is why they want to put their bloody hands on the Bill of Rights! Their ability to throw us in JAIL for not making their huge bail payments every month for life, is on the line and they know it. If they throw the Christians in jail, they have to throw the Muslims in jail too, OR the law is unconstitutional. They want to change that little religion part around a little bit. Put the word..except in it and take the word respecting out maybe..you know how they have been with words. It might look the same but really isn't. MHO

    Look, CONgress can "ratify" whatever they want to, but unless 38 states also approve, it's just political theater...

    Too late, they already control what the media says.

    So what liberals say is the first amendment applies for individuals, but not corporations - and that the second amendment doesn't apply to individuals, but only to "corporations" (aka approved organized militias). So which is it?

    Our Centreal government is a Chartered Corporation and behaving badly, but this is not about Corporations, but about taking your constitutional rights and protections from you. See the link I posted No#18 above and then maybe you can get some idea just how far they are willing to go to get what they want.

    Good Lord when this woman talks......... the brain falls right out of her head through her mouth...........

    A corporation is a form of business in one in which the business is formulated in the status of a fictious character of assests so that owners can limit the liablity of a lawsuits to the assets of the business and not have them extended to their personal property..............in this regard the corporate role of a business structure has a valuable function in society.

    Where things have become out of control is in the area of specific indivdual rights of a soverign person being allocated to corporations over the years........

    ...........those ill gained rights of a corporation are the result of legislation through congress over the years......

    and it is those ill gained rights of a corporation that need to be legislated back to its orginal function as a public trust.............

    ..........not the revision of the 1st amendment.............

    In order to prevent the actions of corporations as she has defined them.

    The 1st amendment is not to be tampered with......... her idea sounds more like an end around run on our liberties and freedom of expression........................

    How in the world can an unemployed bum like me know better than some "political elite"

    This country is friggin hopeless.................

    Free speech is for everyone. We also have libel laws to protect individuals from slanderous attacks. PELOSI quit dickin' with the Constitution, which was written by much brighter individuals than those that currently inhabit the US Congress, and start working on getting the economy fixed. We pay you morons to do a job that you refuse to do while feathering your own nests.

    She needs a Botox injection straight to the heart.
    "Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

    Protesting is like scratching a chalk board. It annoys but produces nothing of substance.

    How about we take over congress by electing people with integrity and then we pass a law making it legal to hang all current and past politicians that have lied or violated the Constitution?

    Put that in your pipe and smoke it FancyNancy.
