Congressman Tom McClintock on SOPA/PIPA: Freedom and the Internet, Victorious

Yesterday, Congressman Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) delivered a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives celebrating last week's successful protests against the SOPA/PIPA internet censorship legislation. Here's an excerpt from that floor speech:

Long ago, Jefferson warned, "The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground." The exceptions to that rule have been few and far between recently, and ought to be celebrated when they occur.

One did this past week with the announcement that supporters of the so-called "Stop On-Line Privacy (sic) Act" and the "Protect Intellectual Property Act" have indefinitely postponed their measures after an unprecedented protest across the Internet.

You can watch the entire floor speech at YouTube or at United Liberty, where Congressman McClintock has also made the full transcript available.

Tom McClintock is VERY important in CA

He is in a position to help us better than any elected IMO. When I'm at my RCC meetings, I pray to God that Tom is going to come through for us in a BIG way... I feel he is. Thanks for the post.

love it

awsome days with Pauls stirring it up
