I agree with cdru See Profile on this one. The DNCR is an "opt out" list. It does not prohibit "freedom of speech", it only allows potential hearers of the "free speech" to opt out from having to hear it. Since the caller is free to call numbers not on the list, "freedom of speech" is not abridged.

See my reply to the original. You are attacking a position I did not take.

I can't see that you even "took a position". Only that you quoted the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in response to a rant about political robocalls. In the context of the OP, I inferred a defense of same. If you intended something other than what I inferred, you should have added something to your quote.

In that case I apologize for the lack of clarity in my original post.

My original post was in direct response to "just outlaw these political commercials and robocalls". I was quoting the Constitution as to why we can't do that.

If I didn't take a position, according to you, then was did you prescribe me one of favoring not allowing opt-out of political calls?

I just took a position of agreement with the opt-out position. Nothing more, nothing less. Political calls are currently exempt from the "Do Not Call List". Why?
