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?
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.
