Another Freedom Lost during Obama Campaign

Richmond Virginia Election officials wish to tell voters what clothing they can wear. We have seen the attempt by this congress to take away our right to bear arms. We have heard talk from this congress to silence opposing views to their socialistic policies by enacting a fairness doctrine to police the airwaves. We have seen the government takeover of private business with this so called bail out bill, and now we see the assault on freedom of speech being enacted against our citizenry.

In fact I may even go as far to say it would appear that the only candidate we are allowed to vote for is Obama from all the news coverage he seems to get. And with his own organization attempting to flood the voter registrations with bogus registrants, it surely does make one think what the “h” is going on in this country?

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia voters won’t be allowed to wear clothing featuring John McCain or Barack Obama when they head to the polls on Nov. 4.

The State Board of Elections on Tuesday voted to ban clothing and hats as well as buttons and other paraphernalia that directly advocate the election or defeat of a specific candidate or issue.

The American Civil Liberties Union argued that the ban violates the First Amendment’s right to free speech. The board, however, said it has to weigh that against the right to vote free of undue influence or the tension that candidate advocacy might create.

Efforts to enforce a similar ban are headed to court in Pennsylvania. At least four states — Maine, Montana, Vermont and Kansas — prohibit wearing campaign buttons, stickers and badges inside polling places.
