Most people I grew up with had an idea about democracy. They thought when a decision was made it should be by vote. In school we voted on class officers, on cheerleaders, and on various decisions. If someone voted a different way than you that was their right.
How have we come to the point of being against another person's right to express themselves. This goes against the very premise of a free society. Lately the white house has begun stacking the deck against non-profit groups which oppose them by using the IRS as the agency of enforcement. The same government agency is being used to punish citizens who choose to reject the ACA(so-called affordable care act).
Our current federal government is against free speech and the right to bear arms. In the past there was a majority of citizens in both political parties who believed these were fundamental rights. There was no issue about our basic rights. The political differences tended to be about foreign policy or budgetary matters. We have previously agreed to protect our country, our children and grandchildren.
I wonder if we could get back to basics and agree to protect our country from illegal alliens and stand together to protect our freedoms which are outlined in the constitution.. Can we agree that whoever is against us and trying to destroy our nation is our enemy? Whichever party we belong to, we should be able to agree on this fundamental truth.
Our survival depends on what we do with this truth. Politicians, agencies, political correctness, and all of the above deserve equal condemnation if they are trying to destroy our country and its constitution.
