It is fundamentally wrong that bureaucrats' first reaction to anything they cannot control, such as the Internet, is to offer the helping fist of government to bring it into line. The freedoms guaranteed in the Bill of Rights are too valuable for government to chip away. Indeed that is the point of the first 12 amendments to the Constitution; they are protections against encroachment by government on every citizen's liberties. The government cannot and should not seek to prevent every possible evil, and certainly not one as overblown as problems with campaign finance. If the Internet is making the FEC or even all campaign finance restrictions on outside voices unenforceable, perhaps that's the way it has to be.
