Two against the world, last week's passing of the SAFE Act

Two against the world

Rarely does one see 409 members of Congress so brilliantly wrong on a piece of legislation, but we saw it in spades this past week with their vote on the SAFE Act.

In a well-intentioned attempt to end the scourge that is Internet child pornography, the SAFE Act fires a buckshot-loaded cannon that may not hit the intended targets, but guarantees peripheral damage that could take down just about any wireless Internet provider from Starbucks to your local city government.

It passed 409-2.

The only two men who had the forethought and courage to stand against this onerous bill, and who now face the risk of being called “soft” on child porn, were Congressmen Ron Paul (the presidential candidate), and our own Augusta representative in the U.S. House, Dr. Paul Broun.

Rep. Broun told me he was waiting to see how long it took for his political opponents to paint him in such a negative light. I told him, and I declare publicly now, that it won’t happen without swift and harsh retribution from those of us who know better. Paul and Broun were right to vote against this hideous bill, and 409 others were as wrong as they can be.
