Shame on You, Federal Courts!

Federal judges in a US District court have upheld the rights of the Federal Government to limit political speech. Citizens United has been told to knock off the obviously campaign-related advertisements or abide by full-disclosure and disclaimer rules required of campaign advertising.

This makes my blood boil every time I think about it. Yours should too. Think about it. This movie, right or wrong, good or bad, is a political statement. Whether it is intended, as Judges Royce C. Lamberth, A. Raymond Randolph, and Richard W. Roberts seem to believe; to affect the voting for Senator Clinton--or ANY candidate--should be utterly irrelevant!!! It is SPEECH, and is protected BY THE CONSTITUTION!!!

You judges should be utterly ashamed of yourselves for selling out the people you are here to protect! How DARE YOU?! The Campain Reform Act does NOT trump the Contitution of the United States of America! YOU do not trump the Constitution of the United States of America! It is the Constitution which bestows your power upon you, and you IGNORE it!

And yet, I have not heard ONE candidate or leader on either side of the political fence say one word about this travesty of justice! What is it? The Constitution is "nice" when you get something out of it, but who cares when some "little person" has their rights trampled on?

You elected officials take an oath to "defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic", but I see very little effort from ANYONE in government to fulfill that oath.

You judges, more than the rest, should be ashamed. You are utterly derelict in your duty to protect the Constitution.
