Shouldn’t one revert to basics? Where did this “right” come from? Really, the only thing you are born with is free will. You can allow others to make decision for you – it’s your choice – or you can do it yourself. So if we allow someone to tell us to not speak about an issue then you have exercised your free will. But you do have the choice to say what you want regardless of the consequences. (like yelling fire in a crowded theater – against the law but you can do it if you want)The constitution says the government can not keep you from speaking out and expressing your opinion. We make rules for society to follow in that regard. Liable, slander, lies and so on. While you are not restricted from the act, neither are those slandered restricted from exacting legal punishment for violating societies restrictions. Why then do we not remember the words of those that wrote the documents involved?The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect it’s free expression should be its first object. – Thomas Jefferson The essence of government is power, and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse. – James MadisonOr as Queen in waiting Hillary said:“I’m sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we’re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.” So if Mediamatters is a tax exempt organization, any tea party group can be one too.
