A couple of days ago, Congressman John Carter (R-TX) was interviewed by Fox News and it was discovered that a so-called “bipartisan” congressional group called the “Franking Commission” is censoring the communications of certain members of U.S. Congress [Reference - FRANKING COMMISSION: About the Commission | Article - GOP Not Allowed to Say 'Government-Run Healthcare']. Here is the interview:
As Congressman Carter pointed out, he is not campaigning for another politician or for re-election. So why is the Franking Commission purposely violating Congressman Carter’s First Amendment rights? Carter implies that it has happened to other members of the U.S. House as well, as the following videos reveal:
Please contact members of the Franking Commission and ask them why they are violating the First Amendment rights of members of Congress. Ask them if those congressmen and congresswomen have committed some sort of security breach that would be deserving of such blatant censorship. I urge you to ask them which written guidelines they are using as a point of reference to justify their actions. Ask them what is wrong with presenting facts and speaking the truth.
It is our duty as American citizens to protect the constitutional rights of other American citizens, no matter who they are. If we continue to let power-grabbing, authoritarian elitists to constantly besmirch the U.S. Constitution, we relinquish our personal rights, liberties and freedoms.
