It lives and breathes, you see...

I laughed when I came across this last month, and was reminded of it by today's Mises.org daily article.

So, in a nutshell, the Republicans were up in arms back in 2001-2002 over the blatantly unconstitutional anti-free speech McCain-Feingold campaign finance law.

Now that Michael Moore (you know, the socialist blowhard) has a successful movie out that is making money, the Republicans are trying to abridge the free speech of that movie.

Like Harry Browne has pointed out in the past, we don't have a living, breathing Constitution, nor do we need to divine "original intent." The document is written in plain English, and the only thing you need to do to understand the Constitution is read it. "Congress shall make no law" means that Congress shall make no law! Imagine that. I'm a constitutional scholar. Wow.
