Wyden Supports Free Speech?

As someone who was born and raised in Oregon and could be considered a SNOB (Son of Native Oregon Born), I would be hard-pressed to support nearly any of the Senators or Representatives that come from my former home.

However, Democratic Senator, and a real bleed-heart liberal if there ever was one, Ron Wyden has decided that something like free-speech actually really matters. He has promised to filibuster the PROTECT IP Act once it makes it way to upper chamber. The bill was initially designed to make it more difficult to sell music, movies and counterfeit products illegally online. But Wyden and other who oppose the bill feel that it goes too far and infringes on free speech.

Now if we could be sure that Senator Wyden wouldn’t support giving President Obama the ability to knock out the internet whenever he might feel like.
