You cannot take away freedom to protect it; you cannot destroy the free market to save it. To try to spend your way out of debt defies common sense.
You cannot uphold freedom of speech by silencing those with whom you disagree.
You have a right to peaceful protest as long as you allow the sponsored speaker to speak. I sincerely believe that no discussion or debate is un-American. Our Founding Fathers believed that it is only in the battlefield of ideas that the best ones can be recognized and ultimately prevail.
