freedom and freedom and freedom

There are a lot of people in Congress who talk about freedom, freedom and freedom but, apparently, they do not really believe that the American people should have the "freedom" to make the choice about what they listen to on radio or watch on TV. There are a lot of people in Congress who talk about the intrusive role of "government regulators," but today they want government regulators to tell radio and TV stations what they can air.
Rep. Bernard Sanders (I-VT), Feb 16, 2005 floor statement in opposition to The Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act 2005.

Read his whole statement here. It's worth reading in its entirety.
