"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

Freedom Of Speech Under Attack

If you haven't noticed, the top cable news station - Fox News - is under attack. Reporters and opinion commentators for that organization are personally under attack as well. There is an orchestrated and coordinated attempt by left wing news media and the progressive political machine to discredit them - mostly through the use of "race tactics". For those of you who do not know, Fox touts itself as "fair and balanced" and while I don't think they are 100% unbiased in their reporting 100% of the time, they do air important stories that other stations do not. And they appear to try to be fair - giving both sides of a story or researchable and documented evidence to back up their side of the story. They also regularly have dissenting opinion counterbalancing their normally more conservative view.

So what's going on? If, like a lot of Americans, you believe the Constitution and the Republic are under attack, and that the Obama agenda is synonymous with the progressive agenda to push us to a more socialistic form of government, then the only answer is that it is imperative for their success to silence the critics of their agenda. Fox News may be in the spot light this week, but next week it might be talk radio, or bloggers on the Internet. Eventually, if we do not stand up for our right to free speech, and our right to listen to (or watch) whatever we choose, the First Amendment will become largely irrelevant.

If Fox News was not being truthful, and wasn't airing informative stories current to the issues of the day, how would they have become as big as they have? How would their audience share be growing, even as every other cable news network is shrinking? How could their audience be bigger than all other cable news stations combined? And why would the progressive media stations, and the progressive political machine need to attempt any discrediting campaign against them? Because the only thing that can stop the progressive agenda is the truth. They have started the end game towards socialism and can not back off - even if they wanted to. So they are in the game to win. I suggest we get in the game to win as well - and stand by our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.

Without those documents we are nothing more than a 2nd rate nation.
