Four more years of Obama means four more years of appointing liberal Supreme Court Justices who could take away our rights to speak openly about HBD. It also means four more years of anti-American foreign policy and a radical pro-immigration policy that will end the America we know.
Please vote for Romney. Especially if you live in a swing state.
Polling place on west side was mobbed. Much more so than in 2008. This may just be that the new paper ballots are a lot less efficient that the old mechanical voting booths with the curtains that they used to have, and not because of massive turnout for Romney.
Voted for Chris Edes, the libertarian, for Senate. If the NY Republicans are going to put up some woman (violating the rule about never nominating female Republicans because they don't win), and not even fund her election, then I'm registering a protest vote. Chris Edes looks like he might be a Ron Paulite (which is bad), but he's not going to win anyway.
TALK ABOUT HBD COULD BE OUTLAWED
That liberals support free speech is just an accident of history which goes back to the McCarthy hearings, in which pro-communist liberals were investigated for their un-American activities.
In a recent editorial at slate, a liberal wrote:
Americans need to learn that the rest of the world—and not just Muslims—see no sense in the First Amendment. Even other Western nations take a more circumspect position on freedom of expression than we do, realizing that often free speech must yield to other values and the need for order. Our own history suggests that they might have a point.
Despite its 18th-century constitutional provenance, the First Amendment did not play a significant role in U.S. law until the second half of the 20th century. The First Amendment did not protect anarchists, socialists, Communists, pacifists, and various other dissenters when the U.S. government cracked down on them, as it regularly did during times of war and stress.
The First Amendment earned its sacred status only in the 1960s, and then only among liberals and the left, who cheered when the courts ruled that government could not suppress the speech of dissenters, critics, scandalous artistic types, and even pornographers.
So you see, liberals supported free speech in the 1960s because conservatives controlled part of the government. With liberals in control of everything now (and remember that today, even so-called “conservatives” have views on hate speech which would have been considered liberal in the 1960s), they no longer need freedom of speech.
Conservative justices like Scalia have been staunch supporters of free speech. Four more years of Obama could mean the appointment of leftist jurists who agree with the guy from Slate.
OBAMA ON IMMIGRATION
Obama would LOVE to grant amnesty to all illegal aliens living in the United States. The only reason it hasn’t happened is because he doesn’t have enough support in Congress. But he has used his executive power to grant defacto amnesty to large numbers of illegal aliens.
If you vote for too many liberal democrats, the result could be that more than 11 million illegal aliens become American citizens, the majority who will vote Democratic in future elections.
Romney isn’t as tough on immigration as we would like, but at least he’s on record as being opposed to amnesty and supportive of states like Arizona taking an active role in identifying and deporting illegals. Even the NY Times editorial board believes that Romney is tough on immigration.
