Judge's Order Stifles a Basic Right
Wednesday, May 7, 2008
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
And the government is finally running out of patience.
So it's doing what government always does when it can't take
care of a pesky challenger through rational discussion,
negotiation or litigation. It's taking out its giant government
sledgehammer and going for the kill.
And in doing so, it's not only interfering with Mr. Schulz's
exercise of his right to free speech, but it's punishing anyone
else for simply listening to that free speech...
...But when it comes to speaking out about taxes, the government's first reaction is to stuff the Constitution in your mouth and wrap your face with duct tape...
...To taxpayers, the message is: "If you listen to this guy, we'll get you. We know where you live. We've got your Social Security number. And when we find out you didn't really donate $50 to save the whales as you claimed on your last tax return, you'll think a freight train ran over you."
To Mr. Schulz, the message is: "Distribute this information, and your followers will be made afraid to listen to you..."
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
