Sir Winston Churchill Quote

“Everybody is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people’s idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage.”

The merits of any form of free speech must be measured by their intent.

It is bad enough that Fox is the only opposing voice to ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, Air America, PBS. And yet, the cries to shut Fox up never cease. It just goes to show that no matter how much BS is delivered as manna, it cannot nourish.

Oh my goodness!! How did Winston Churchill know ahead of time that the far left in America, the liberal extremists and slanderers (Matthews Olderman, et al) would try everything in their bag of dirty tricks to shut down the conservative side of the debate at every opportunity, even manufacturing untruths to do so? Amazing! Ol' Winnie knew of what he spoke.

    To many, free speech is great but as jurors, they will jail you if choose to remain silent about your income on tax returns.

    Empire to Republic, Republic to Empire, now the fight to restore our Free Republic, which is currently under siege through infiltration of socialism.
