Rep. GK Butterfield (NC-1) -- On Political Free Speech -- Updated: Financial Regulation Bill -- Not Your Parent's Democrat...


The Disclose Act (H.R. 5175) failed in the Senate. The failure of this bill is a win for free speech. Before it failed in the Senate, though, it passed in the house with GK Butterfield's support.

That is correct; GK Butterfield sided with limiting free political speech. Oh, he would argue that my free speech is fine and that your free speech is OK as well, but if the two of us were to incorporate and engage in political speech GK Butterfield would prefer us silenced and voted to that effect.

Polifrog asks Rep GK Butterfield, how many people engaged in political speech does it take before you think we should be silenced?

Neither Franklin D Roosevelt nor John F Kennedy would have drifted so far from the definition of American as to be asked such question.

GK Butterfield. Not your parent's democrat.


Another bill supported by GK Butterfield -- Stifling information coming and going. SEC Says New Financial Regulation Law Exempts it From Public Disclosure

So much for transparency.

Under a little-noticed provision of the recently passed financial-reform legislation, the Securities and Exchange Commission no longer has to comply with virtually all requests for information releases from the public, including those filed under the Freedom of Information Act.

GK Butterfield -- Not Your Parent's Democrat.



  1. I agree with you 100% People, wake up and look at Butterfield's record. Voting with Pelosi 97% of the time, and for every big government, big spending bill. Then of course their is his lack of ethics. Taking money from Charlie Rangel, who he may be judging on ethics violations. And pocketing taxpayer money (left over per deim). The First District deserves better! Butterfield must go!

  2. Sometimes there are plenty of rocks.
