Last week, I spoke to the West Valley Republican Women in San Jose about the work PLF is doing to advance liberty across the United States. In particular, I told the story of Bob Bennie, who was unjustly targeted for retaliation because he dared to share his political views. Although the Supreme Court denied review in Bennie’s case, PLF will continue to stand up for your First Amendment rights.
Perhaps the biggest threat to the First Amendment today comes in the form of compelled speech. From country-of-origin labeling laws that cost Americans over two-and-a-half billion dollars in compliance fees to regulations that force Twitter users to include government-approved hashtags in their tweets, we are ceding more and more of our First Amendment freedoms to the government every day. Fortunately, PLF is here to restore the First Amendment to its rightful owner: you. If you are affected by a compelled speech law, please let us know. We just might turn it into our next big case before the Supreme Court.
