Campaign Free Speech

Project 21 member Deroy Murdock is making a good point on Joe Scarborough’s MSNBC Show right now (blogger Hugh Hewitt is another guest), specifically: That so-called “outside groups” (of all political persuasions) have First Amendment free speech rights.

I’m with Deroy on this one. Let everyone speak. The voters are smart enough to separate the wheat from the chaff.

In my opinion, we should limit our campaign finance laws to full and prompt disclosure of all campaign contributions.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
