Freedom of Speech

Here we are at election time exercising our god given right as a free people to choose our own representatives. Not many in this dangerous world ever get the chance to vote and we become so complacent about it. It is great, as I drive around Mason, to see the signs for the candidates placed by those enthusiastic folks who believe in their cause.

But what does make me very sad is the way democrats exercise their free speech. I notice that on many of the street corners, democrat candidate signs have been placed in front of republican candidate signs and that republican candidate signs are actually being stolen. How do I know? My republican candidate signs have mysteriously disappeared. And so have my neighbors.

There was a time when folks actually believed in something of value. I thought I would never see those values dragged thru the mud, stepped on, and replaced with things like “political correctness” and “social equality”, both of which are myths. It looks like Freedom of Speech is the next freedom to be thrown on the trash heap, along with religious freedom and freedom from governmental tyranny. I fear for my grandchildren’s future.
