Alright, found this on a skype conversation.. This seems to be spreading. I doubt it, as the site seems dubious.. :/ Is there a real story here or is this just conspiracy talk?

This is about H.J. Res 20, which proposes the following amendment to regulate campaign finance in federal elections only:

So in no way does it repeal the 1st amendment.

typical political hyperbole to be sure--but some would argue that donating to your favorite candidates or party is free speech (or parties working against the candidate you don't like). I am probably for this amendment, but I can certainly see why some people see it as an erosion on the first.

I think you could also argue that it strengthens the first, as it prevents one person from drowning out the speech of another.

But regardless of if you think it strengthens or weakens it, the bunk here is Cruz's claim:

"the United States Senate is going to be voting on a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment."

Which is approaching a bare-faced lie.

Interesting that a Republican sees an attempt to regulate campaign finance as a threat to their principles. The best power money can buy, and all that.

Most politicians like power and hold on to it indefinitely if allowed. There's no surprise there. But this talk about pastors standing up and speaking the truth is a bit of a joke.

The First Amendment is a good starting point for scaremongering-driven support. Nice try.
