    Does anyone really think that the people trying to pass this bill are clueless? They know EXACTLY what their doing, their giving the government the ability to censor free speech. The government is systematically removing peoples rights. S.O.P.A. combined with the new counter terrorism bill, that has already passed, will effectively overwrite amendments 1,4 and 6. It is a sad day in American history.

    You talked about the border of Mexico, but what about the illegal aliens from Asia and the Middle East that come to this Country under false pretenses and become a burden to the taxpayers and the safety of the USA.
