    I'll bet you would not be claiming that if we were discussing Roe v Wade.

    The Constitution doesn't say how much power each branch should have. Sometimes Congress is the dominant branch. Sometimes the Presidency is the dominant branch. A few times the Supreme Court brings the power of both down a few notches. But the Constitution never explicitly states, which isn't so bad since it gives our country's government the freedom it needs to effectively operate.
    That's right. The people of government are people therefore they are guaranteed the rights enumberated in the bill of rights.

    I can point you to a description of what hte Senate Rules committee oversee's and you can see that "campaign finance reform" does not fit in any way shape or form.

    However, you accused me personally of being against free speech. How about before trying to worm your way out and duck and dodge, which is all you apparently do here, you actually back up that statement first.

    You are talking apples and oranges. legislative rules are not laws and constitutional enumerations. Rules do not have to be signed by the president and approved by both houses of congress.

    I apologize. You are not against free speech when it is something you agree with.

    And you're still making no sense how this has anything to do with me saying that he has no place to be using his position on the Rules committee to hold hearings on the "decision" if that's indeed what he's going to do. Where did I say what he was doing was unlawful. I didn't even say it was unconstitutional, just against the spirit of it.

    I apologize. You are not against free speech when it is something you agree with.
    Ah, backhanded insults, gotta love them.

    So, again you continue to duck and doge, which is not a surprise to anyone. So again, I must ask...

    How am I against free speech when its NOT something I agree with.

    Please, give me examples, most specifically in this thread since this is where you made your asinine comment.

    Come on now, you want to throw out a personal accusation such as that, how about you back it up or show your true colors with your trollish one liners

    As I said before, I do believe that you are against free speech when it comes to a liberal point of view. It is only my opinion. Opinions are like butt holes. Everybody has one.

    From what I have seen in the dog and pony show in Congress among democrat and republicans I have lost all respect for their rules.

    I am sorry I offended you and I apologizes.

    You seem to be a veteran of forums and I would expect your skin to be a little thicker.

    If you like you may insult me if you wish. I give you a free slap to my face and we will be even.

    Again I am sorry.

    So long story short you said an ignorant statement with nothing to back it up and when you were asked to back it up were unable to do anything but go "Its my opinion"

    My god you're Devil505 reincarnated.

    Here's a tip, if you are going to get huffy and puffy about people questioning your "opinions", often of which you state as fact, perhaps you should start having some actual legitimate reasons to have your opinions other than "just because".

    Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.
