Our first amendment rights were initially attacked by the the civil rights movement; now if that's not a paradox! In the swift-boat movement to become politically correct, anything that even remotely resembled racism was condemned and eventually "Hate-crime" laws were passed to give this condemnation teeth. You could go to jail for wearing a Casper the ghost t-shirt if he had on a hoody with a cross. And this "Love or leave it" attitude that has grown, fostered initially by our intolerance of illegal aliens, has crept into our lives bearing the truth and conviction of a slogan; sieg heil! I am not offering criticism, only commentary; the founders of our nation knew the value of free speech that our children will never know and the death-knoll sounded in our generation.
