"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.

I thought the left believed in Free Speech..
“If he will lie to or mislead his wife and daughter, those with whom he is most intimate, what will prevent him from doing the same to the American public? Private conduct does have public consequences.”

Yes, the Left believes in free speech, as long as it is their speech.

Beneath the thin skin of every Progressive, a zealous little tyrant waits to emerge.

But see....if the roles were reversed, the 'gentleman'....and I use that word loosely...they would be demonstrated against, boycotted and harassed, perhaps physically.

So, therefore, I vote that he gets the crap literally be beat out of him.

But alas....our side doesn't ever seem to want to cross that line.   AND THEY KNOW IT!   it empowers them.

They need to understand fear.....like a Syrian Christian feels like today.

The reason that the Left's arguments are emotionally-based is that they are compelled to control others, and they cannot justify such desires by means of reasoned argumentation.

Lincoln once observed that emotions are fine in battle or an emergency but after that it is only cold reason that makes a difference.  But, being liberals, they have probably haven't heard of Lincoln much less study him.

UC Berkeley, 1960s, Free Speech movement.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Speech_Movement

from cited wiki article:

"There was a substantial voter backlash against the players involved in the Free Speech Movement. Ronald Reagan won an unexpected victory in the fall of 1966 and was elected Governor; the newly elected governor directed the UC Board of Regents to dismiss UC President Clark Kerr because of the perception that he had been too soft on the protesters. The FBI had kept a secret file on Kerr.

Reagan had gained political traction by campaigning on a platform to "clean up the mess in Berkeley". "



"God must love the common man, he made so many of them.ďż˝  Abe Lincoln

Yeah, whatever happened to those 1960s radicals who demanded free speech, anyway? Oh, that's right, they got jobs in the Clinton and Obama administrations.

Yes, of course.  When one is a tyrant, racist or whatever; they tend to think everyone else is like them and look for evidence to confirm their belief.  Naturally, what one seeks, one finds.

   

That's why I like conservatives.  I like being left alone...
