GIVE "The Generations invigorating volunteerism & education" act  HR1388

Perhaps one of the key reasons there were so many votes against this supposedly good act was the little amendment buried down as the 12th Amendment to the act. Remember it is the little invasions to our liberties that open cracks for increased federal power and decreased freedom. "Amendment to prohibit organizations from attempting to influence legislation; organize or engage in protests, petitions, boycotts, or strikes; and assist, promote, or deter union organizing." Those in support of this legislation will argue this amendment is limited in scope and is not meant to interfere with the rights of citizens to protest, petition, boycott, or strike in resistance to government proposed laws.

You will know the truth & the truth will set you free


Doubt they would have included lobyists with "...organizations...attempting to influence legislation..."


This sounds like a pretty blatant 1st ammendment violation.  Shouldn't take very long for the courts to strike it down.
