Opposition to H. R. 347 looses 388..to 3.
Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011 Moves to President Obama For signing.

Seems Like every month now, our Senate and Congress stop arguing just long enough to pass more legislation that heavily intrudes on the rights and freedoms of average citizens. I’ve included the full text H. R. 347 below so you can make an informed decision on what this bill is all about. This story has yet to be reported in the major News at time of this writing. This story has started to spread via viral networks.

The First Amendment
(Amendment I) to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights. The amendment prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.

Protecting President great!! All for that, thought they were doing a pretty good job since Regan. They also have added NDAA and a million other laws like Homeland Security laws that gave them free will over the world. So why this new law? Why is this so vague and targeted at occupy protesters specifically allows them to entrap any person anytime they want? Will The secret service put up tape and fences so reporters trying to get a story know when, where and who this applies to? Specially the first amendment is for protesters trying to be heard by the president. This NEW law needs to be checked and fast! Our Senate and Congress need to answer to breaking the first law of this land! The major News and Media organizations need to report on these vague bills and laws to force them for correct and specific information anytime a law is changed!

The question is: Didn’t we build a society that allows the people to have direct contact to the leaders?

Another point that needs to be considered; how many people lives can be damaged before a law like this is tested in a court room. Leads to law suits that cost the people millions; over the false unconstitutional arrests etc.

Please take note!! Ron Paul always seems to be the one stepping up to speak the truth these days. One of three Republican congressman that did vote against bill. Where are the democrats protecting our rights. Don’t forget these people have offices in your town and you can’t be arrested for a visit tomorrow!!
That makes 388 criminals running our government that voted against the 1st amendment.
Thank you for being true Americans!!
