Democrats against free speech!

Democrats against free speech!  Senator Tom Udall (D, Colorado) introduced a proposed Constitutional amendment that would limit the free speech of citizens and organizations (but not the press) as related to Federal and State elections.  The proposal is full of weasel-words and opens the doors wide for Congress or state legislatures to limit the ability of (especially) organizations like the NRA or wealthy individuals to advertise about issues they care about. 

It's the most un-American serious proposal I've seen from Congress in a long, long time.

I don't think this thing has a snowball's chance in hell of actually being ratified, but it's scary enough that they actually think it's a good idea to propose it!
