When I was born, FDR was president – wow, long time ago. I wasn’t able to vote yet, but that’s ok I couldn’t feed myself either – my mother did it.
Now that I’m 72 years, and quite able to feed myself, but I am being force fed political garbage from all directions by wannabe presidents.
For the record, I’m not a Democrat nor Republican, Socialist, Fascist, Communist nor any other organized political movement, I am an American. An American, who has had a rough life lived from paycheck to paycheck and had to survive on the mean streets for a time. I’ve also dined with a diplomat and had pizza with street whores. I eke out an existence on Social Security and what additional money I can earn and I work hard when I have to. My car is paid off, my bills aren’t. I started college at age 70 because I wanted to and there was FREE FINANCIAL AID FOR ME TOO.
I’ve had my successes, and I’ve had my failures – I’m an American.
Now, why do I write this? It’s simple, I’m an American, and I enjoy Freedom of Speech, and I want that to continue. I firmly believe that a Clinton presidency will eventually deny me that right. I think it has already begun with the removal and barring of the Sanders followers from the DNC. Silence dissent and you silence Freedom of Speech.
Yes, both conventions silenced some dissent. The Republicans by removing individuals from the arena, the Democrats by building walls to prevent them getting in.
What, to me at least is dissent and Freedom of Speech?
I believe my being able to have a different opinion about a topic is a dissenting opinion. We all have some about something now and then. It’s how we handle our belief that can turn dissent into violence. It’s how we verbalize our disagreement that may cause strife.
In watching TV talk shows and interviews as I make my voting decision I have noticed that almost to a person, the Democrat speakers like to overspeak their counterparts. Geraldo Rivera and Juan Williams on FOX are prime examples. They appear to want to deny others the opportunity to voice their opinions on a topic by using the techniques of overspeak and interrupting. When this is accompanied by violence, as in the demonstrations at the various speaking engagements of Trump, it is no longer dissension, it is organized terrorism directed at Freedom of Speech.
We now know that many of the “protesters” at the various Trump speeches were hired, thugs.
We now know that BLM receives funding from outside sources, probably from the Billionaire Soros, and/or the Clinton Foundation.
We now know that the Black Panthers receive funding from outside sources, possibly from Billionaire Soros and/or the Clinton Foundation.
So what is my summation of my comments?
I believe that the Democrats are dead set on ending Freedom of Speech.
I think they already control the Freedom of Speech claimed by the major television networks.
I know if they remain in office, they will eventually completely shut down Freedom of Speech and dissension to begin the era of Big Brother.
I believe the Democrat party of today is the most deceitful and corrupt it has ever been.
I know it has to be defeated both from without and within.
