Imagine the lengths the Democrats will go to in order to keep power once they’ve got it? Like the “Fairness Doctrine”, for example. Anybody think Pelosi and Reid wouldn’t try that tactic to hinder conservative talk radio? How about McCain-Feingold 2.0, with a particular focus on controlling “unregulated speech” on the Internet and blogs?

I think the Internet is going to be like the "Third Rail" of future politics; It cannot be controlled - like a river, it will find its was to the ocean;

Anyone trying to dam it up, so to speak, will wind up getting swept away.

If the 'rats ever did try to 'regulate', ie. restrict free speech on the Internet, I think you would see a 'grass roots' uprising.

I don't think such restrictions could be sustained, technologically or politically. And I think that messing with it would be something like touching the "Third Rail" for whoever tried it.

Every day we get stronger, and they get weaker. And the tide ain't turnin' either.

I agree with you - and this will be orchestrated by Hillary because she has been exposed so much by talk radio and she will need to muzzle us in order for her to win.
