Another Blow for Freedom

In the same week that the Massachusetts voters have apparently derailed the health care monstrosity, the Supreme Court today struck its own blow for liberty by removing many of the McCain-Feingold restrictions on campaign financing, thus restoring more free speech for corporations and non-profit advocacy groups alike.

From NRO:
"We...hold that stare decisis does not compel the continued acceptance of Austin. The Government may regulate corporate political speech through disclaimer and disclosure requirements, but it may not suppress that speech altogether," Kennedy says in his decision.

Now, if they would only recognize that stare decisis (respect for judicial precedent) does not compel the continued acceptance of abortion-on-demand imposed by Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.
