Florida Considering Crazy Law to Register Bloggers

Just for the consideration of Florida's Senator Brodeur.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." ~ 1st amendment to the United States Constitution

And, just for good measure, here is Article 1, section 4 of the Florida State Constitution:

"SECTION 4. Freedom of speech and press.—Every person may speak, write and publish sentiments on all subjects but shall be responsible for the abuse of that right. No law shall be passed to restrain or abridge the liberty of speech or of the press. In all criminal prosecutions and civil actions for defamation the truth may be given in evidence. If the matter charged as defamatory is true and was published with good motives, the party shall be acquitted or exonerated.
History.—Am. proposed by Constitution Revision Commission, Revision No. 13, 1998, filed with the Secretary of State May 5, 1998; adopted 1998."

Perhaps the good senator from the sunshine state might wish to brush up a bit on his historical documents before attempting tyranny.
