Save the freedom of Blogging for the future

Save Our Blogs

A federal judge has ordered the Federal Election Commission to draft regulations governing politics on the Internet. These regulations will constrain individuals, like you, but exempt the established corporate news media, like the New York Times. This is a direct attack on the growing power of individuals to compete with the established media through blogs and other grassroots Internet activity. This judicial ruling is a consequence of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 (BCRA). To “save our blogs” BCRA must be repealed.

Check out some of the other issues Downsize DC is working
on. I especially urge you to click on the big banner on their Home page that says "Make Congress read the laws it passes." Learn about Downsize DC's proposal for legislation to force Congress to actually read bill before it votes on them.
