Freedom Plaza is the site of one of the only authorized demonstration zones, where a strip of the plaza is designated a free speech zone: For some reason we are not at all surprised that this President has no more respect for the 1st Amendment than he does for the 2nd. Or, for that matter, any of the other parts of that document.

It seems this is the trend all over America. In schools, in businesses, everywhere, there is an approved party line (dependant upon the current context) and anything other than that line is condemned, hidden, covered up or ridiculed. It isn’t just Republicans, or just Democrats. It isn’t even just government. I am beginning to think we have hit the maxed out level of a democratic republic. Just as the Roman Empire was great for a while, then collapsed under its own stupidity, we are killing ourselves. No successful civilization has lasted forever. Egypt, China, the Persian empire, the Greeks, the Romans; maybe we have outlived out success.

I don’t hate you for it and you’re right. Bush did the same thing and it was equally wrong then.

Ron Paul wouldn’t let this happen though.

And Ron Paul would stop it how? He couldn’t stop protests when he was running in the primaries. God, you are stupid!

Many people make the mistake of thinking that anyone who detests Obama and his policies is a George Bush fan. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The difference is Republicans will criticize other Republicans, but Democrats refuse to criticize Democrats.

Both occupy space on the progressive continuum.
