2.? ?New Jersey is?9th state to propose a Constitutional Amendment to modify the First Amendment and limit free speech.? Both the State Senate and Assembly adopted resolutions calling for ?an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to provide that, with regard to corporation campaign spending, a person means only a natural person for First Amendment protection of free speech”.??? This is the first time since the Constitution was adopted in 1788 that anyone proposed changing the?First Amendment to limit free speech.??Because our organization, ?Liberty and Prosperity, 1776, ?is?a corporation, we would lose?our ?First Amendment protection of free speech?.??? Although this is a non-binding resolution, once a majority of states take such action,?there will be enormous pressure on the spineless Republicans in Congress to go along and modify the Constitution.

A.??This measure is supported by left-wing groups and labor unions.??? If the Constitution is amended Congress and State Legislatures would then be free to limit the free speech of some ?corporations, while letting?letting labor unions and other “favored” organizations spend as much money as they want.

B.??This Resolution was sponsored by Democratic Senator Jeff? Van Drew.?? It was referred to the ?State Government, Wagering, Tourism & Historic Preservation Committee where Senator Jim Whelan voted for it.?? It was passed unanimously by voice vote of the Senate on October 4.

C.?? This Resolution passed the Assembly on third and final reading on October 18.?? Democrats Nelson Albano and Mat Milam voted ?Yes?.?? Republicans John Amodeo and Chris Brown? of Atlantic County voted ?No?.??? (Chris Brown’s vote?was confusing because a different Assemblyman with a similar name?Christopher J. Brown of Camden County, abstained.)? For details go to http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/bills/BillsByKeyword.asp.

3.? ?? Conservatives can take over the NJ Republican Party next June.?

A.? NJ? Conservatives can have an impact!?? The New Jersey Republican State Committee is made up of 42 members, with one state committeewoman and one state committeeman for each of the state?s 21 counties.

B.??The New Jersey Republican State Committee controls a budget of more than $2.5 million a year and receives contributions in excess of $3 million a year. It operates from offices in Trenton, with a staff of between 5 and 10 paid employees.
