CU wanted to KEEP current laws Obviously: OTHER THAN the laws they were trying to overturn, eh? [quote]Lots of republicans denounced the CU ruling as well[/quote] Of course! More Gov't power = good for them! Or so they imagine, greedy little pigs...
[quote]All it does is give corps and unions another avenue to engage in cronyism.[/quote] Huh? Whaaat? McCain-Finegold CLOSED avenues for LEGAL expression, you don`t think those people with money and an axe to grind are just going to give up and go home!! They`ll resort to illegal stuff like bribes (which is why both parties LIKED M-F! More bribes hooray!)
[quote]Since when is prohibiting... Gov`t control?"[/quote]
Um, since ANY movie or video, on TV OR in the theaters, which the Gov`t decides "IS POLITICAL" is BANNED! ALL of them! EVERYTHING must pass "Gov`t Approval" 60 days before ANY election = That. Smells like fascism to me!

The problem was that they were airing the movie too close to an election, which was considered illegal. @patchy: That's correct: they passed a Law, CU claimed it was UN-constitutional, they were correct and the BAD LAW was tossed out... mostly.
Here`s a Law: All Jews must register with the Gov`t, wear an Armband, and mark their homes and businesses with a Star Of David. It`s the LAW! Go obey it!

Slightly oversimplified, but the principle remains the same: COMPLETE Government control over books, movies and advertising: You Like it? Think it's fine? No? Then YOU support CU, NOT the Gov`t on this issue. Are you smoking crack @5cats? Since when is prohibiting political advertising 60 days before a general election considered "COMPLETE Government control" over books, films etc.?
