We must be ever so carfeful if we tighten the rules on free speech. Everyone cites the "fire in a crowded theater" as the lynch-pin for making other restrictions. We already have laws that let you say what one will, but the law also states, in many instances, one can be held accountable for what you say. The loudest critics are the politicans an VIPs and who do not want want their actions criticized---we should never give even an inch in that department. I might be convenced to disallow gutter talk and threats, but then again that lets the camel get its nose under the flap of the free speech tent. I am firmly against contributions from unions, corporations and the wealthy, that exceed that which the "person on the street" can give.
