Speech Is Being Peanilized in the United States of America

Speech is protected by our Constitution no matter if it’s right, false or undesirable. However, our executive and judiciary are penalizing speech.

Great thinkers of our past have realized that free speech is intended to protect the controversial and even outrageous word; and not just comforting platitudes too mundane to need protection. Why is it that we, who officially value freedom of speech above life itself, seem to have nothing to talk about but the weather?

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
-Voltaire (Fran├žois-Marie Arouet)

If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
-George Washington

Please take a look at the following news story where a person was put in prison simply for his speech.

What you have been taught about government and politics is no more accurate and reasonable than what Mr. Smith teaches his slaves in this story.

One cannot change reality by changing the words you use to describe reality. Look beneath the rhetoric, and glimpse the truth.

Blanket or Sheet?

While putting my tantrum-throwing 2 year old in bed for a nap, I used a common strategy employed by the American political system. In a calm voice I asked her, “Would you like a blanket or a sheet?” When she replied that she would like a blanket, her fight was over.

Thus it is with sleeping Americans today. Democrat or Republican? we are asked, though both sides are ballooning the government just the same. If anyone puts up a fight we are told to choose the lesser of two evils, never stopping to admit that this is still choosing to side with evil.
