John EdwardsHey John, if you don’t like advertisemnts for prescription drugts, don’t watch them.   Then lay off our Constitution.

Edwards may be a shyster of a lawyer, but he doezn’t seem to be much of a physician.   Holly Ramer, Associated Press;

CONCORD, N.H. – Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards says prescription drug companies should have to wait two years to begin advertising their new products to consumers

Edwards on Sunday was outlining a plan to regulate what he views as a proliferation of misleading drug ads. In the decade since the government relaxed rules on advertising directly to consumers, spending on prescription drug ads has nearly quadrupled to more than $4 billion a year, he said in prepared remarks.

Edwards have a law degree, yet he seems think he knows more about prescribing drugs than does your physician.   We citizens have this thing called the First Amendment, which protects our right to communicate with our physicians as we alone see fit:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,      or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of  speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to   assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of  grievances.

John, the responsibility of the office you seek, President, is to protect our constitutional rights, not trample them.
