Jim Holt on Government Reform
Republican challenger for Senate (AR)
A: Oppose, but the issue has to be in how to limit special interests and corporatism/fascism.
A: Yes. The so-called “campaign finance reform act” is unconstitutional. It should be called the “Incumbent Protection Act”, or the “Only the Media can say bad things about politicians Act”. Here again is an example of the courts failing to do their duty, ignoring a clear constitutionally guaranteed right, while they’re busy inventing others. I don’t think we fully realize just how bad this ‘reform’ is yet. We will, though. Under the act, in the critical weeks before an election, citizens are banned from pooling their money to buy ads that say anything negative about a politician! Only the media and other politicians can exercise free speech under this law. This is in direct violation of the First Amendment.
