Snowy Thursday Linkfest: McCain Does Something Good!

And a happy Thursday to all! Down here in Raleigh, the drink of choice is something hot, since the global warming hysterics meteorologists got it a wee bit wrong. Went from being mostly sleet and rain in the Raleigh area, to waking up with snow on the ground and the potential for 2 inches or so of accumulation. Might not be much for the Northeast states, but, down South, that shuts schools and business' down.

Anyway, on to McCain.

I have mentioned several times about a portion of Nancy Pelosi's Lobbying Transparency and Accountability Act of 2007. McCain has stuck his finger in the wind, and wisely come to not only the best Conservative political position, but, the proper position, as well

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has told conservative activists that he will vote to strip a key provision on grassroots lobbying from the reform package he previously supported.

The provision would require grassroots organizations to report on their fundraising activities and is strongly opposed by groups such as the National Right to Life Committee, Gun Owners of America, and the American Civil Liberties Union.

McCain sponsored legislation last Congress that included an even broader requirement for grassroots lobbying coalitions to reveal their financial donors. But now he will vote to defeat a similar measure.

It would be politically dangerous for McCain to support disclosure because it would anger many conservative activists, including those who advocate against abortion rights or for gun ownership rights. He is courting many of them for his 2008 presidential campaign. McCain’s presidential exploratory committee announced yesterday that Maxine Sieleman, a socially conservative leader who founded the Iowa chapter of Concerned Women for America, had joined its camp.

Yes, it would be very dangerous for him, and any Conservative, to support the destruction of fundemental 1st Amendment Rights by Congress. To be specific, Democrats in Congress.

You know, it is really funny. The Democrats/Liberals/Moonbat lobby have been complaining about George Bush taking the civil rights of American's away. It was all innuendo and hysterical accusations, with nary a bit of actual facts. Yet, here we have legislation which specifically writes restrictions on civil rights into law! "Congress shall pass no law…." as the 1st Amendement starts out.

As a sidebar, the terrorists at G'itmo and those caught and sent elsewhere are not US citizens, and do not get American rights, moonies!

Anyhow, McCain seems serious about this "being President" thing, and God help him if he changes his position on the legislation. If he was wise, he would be out there yelling it from the Hilltop, as would, and should, other Conservatives.

PS: According to the Washington Times

The grass-roots provision would exempt unions and other organizations that attempt to influence only their members, shareholders and employees. It also would apply only to groups that collect or spend more than $25,000 in three months.

Well, for most bloggers, that is good news. However, it still violates the 1st Amendment.
