"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Freedom of Speech Still Strong Among Americans



While our representatives wobble and avoid the issue, Americans overwhelmingly put freedom of speech ahead of not offending other cultures.

From the Rasmussen Reports:

"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 72% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it is more important for the United States to guarantee freedom of speech. Only 15% consider it more important for the United States to make sure that nothing is done to offend other nations and cultures. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided."

Something to remember in this election an beyond.

  1. This is heartening . . . but . . . we also value individual liberty and have managed to cede much of that to totalitarian Marxists.

    Let's just hope that we've moved beyond trading our values to "get along" and "not make a fuss."

    1. But the decrease in individual liberty was not ceded, Fuzzy. People protested when Obama and the Dems attempted to spend them into obliovion. Obamacare is a very unpopular law due to its concept, and will be INCREDIBLY unpopular when the crippling taxes kick in.

      The Dems and Obama have acted against the will and opinion of the majority for almost four years now-- and paid a heavy price in 2010. Their only responses have been to blame the GOP and Bush for all problems, or say that it's due to circumstances beyond their control, or to cry racist at any criticism. How long can they continue this strategy?
