FEC NEEDS COMMENTS ON POTENTIAL BLOGOSPHERE REGULATIONS! Hat tip to Ramesh Ponnuru at NRO's The Corner, for spotlighting a RedState post about the drawing deadline for comments to the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) concering its draft rule for regulating the political speech of bloggers.

Go to RedState for the relevant links and info. If you think that the First Amendment's free speech clause includes protections for political speech, then I urge you to submit comments. However, if you like bureaucrats telling you what you can and cannot say about the persons who will be drafting adopting and enforcing the laws and policies that affect your life, then you needn't bother. As for this blogger, I will be looking over the rules this weekend and will be submitting comments to the FEC, advocating whatever position best insures a continued marketplace of ideas and a public square that allows public debate.
