The Stolen Valor Act was enacted by Congress in 2006 to make it illegal to lie about receiving the Medal of Honor and other prestigious military recognitions. The U.S. Supreme Court recently upheld a lower court decision calling this law unconstitutional on the basis of freedom of speech, though anyone who fabricates honors can still be prosecuted for fraud. What do you think?

Started on 07/02/2005

Yes, I agree the law was an unconstitutional abridgment of the free speech that has been fought for. Lying is reprehensible, but public shaming and existing punishments are enough.
- 12%
(42 votes)
Yes, but now Congress should try to pass another more constitutionally correct law to protect the distinguished service of our veterans
- 29%
(104 votes)
No, the law should have been upheld and these people deserve special punishment.
