Since when is an assault on our basic freedom of speech a laughing matter. Had the speaker been a Clinton or a Kennedy, the outrage would have rocked the nation. Liberals are always justifing the most extreme anti-American views by college speakers/lecturers, by saying that college campuses should provide an atmosphere of open communication and a free exchange of ideas. Then why is it amusing for conservative speakers to be censured and even physically attacked?

Believe me when I say, I have no love of Pat Buchanan. I think his views are past extreme and in many cases border on dangerous. But open debate means hearing BOTH sides of an argument. Trying to silence one side or the other (whether liberal or conservative or truly radical) is the very antithesis of what this country stands for. At least, I hope we still hold freedom of speech dear.

I love how the best reply makes the most sense! Once again it takes a carolinian to reach the heart of the issue by using clear logic. Thanks man!

From the official 2004 Democratic Party Platform:

QUOTE


But we recognize that disagreements will remain, and we believe disagreement should not mean disrespect. Members of our party have deeply held and differing views on some matters of conscience and faith. We view diversity of views as a source of strength, and we welcome into our ranks all Americans who seek to build a stronger America. We are committed to resolving our differences in a spirit of civility, hope and  mutual respect.



Many liberals simply cannot understand, nor respect, the fact that there are people in America that don't see things the same way they do. I still remember the Kerry exclaimation: "I can?t believe I?m losing to this idiot." The media pundits had a tough time explaining why so much of America was composed of "red states".

I have no love for Pat Buchanan. He's a bit too caustic for me. Although I do admire his tough stand on immigration and policing our borders (heck, the US has no real borders).

Conservatism and libertarianism is alive and well in the US - even when splattered with salad dressing.
