To all Americans who want our freedoms to continue: Protect free speech.

We all have the obligation for political discourse that listens and lets all voices be heard, not just one political party over the others.

We are under constant attack by the PC police and the main-stream media, who drown out the voices of the people of this great nation.

We are only to survive if we are strong and respect all the voices. Honest debate should be admired and revered in our houses, churches and society at large.

Does suppression of voices get us anywhere but hateful rhetoric and anger?

We do not deserve our republic if we stay silent and let them decide for us.

Elected officials are voted by the people and we will be heard.
