Justice Robert H. Jackson Quote

“Freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order.”

Is anyone teaching this in school? It seems not.

Tell that to the neo-coms in Washington and they will slap you down with the Patriot Act.

Freedom and liberty are inalienable rights as a faculty of birth. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land with its demented patrons are redefining words, censoring expression and excluding anything that may be realized as substantive. Freedom is a choice that is extremely waning.

Welcome to the 20's!  Any one who dissents against the party line is cancelled.  Fascism is alive and well in the Democrat/Socialist party.  Brown Shirts and Red Guards are everywhere now.  The American people must stand up and defend their freedom.  Going woke is no joke.
