It wasn't a dictatorship here thirty years ago. The press was not allowed to even ask our people in the white house anything except at press conferences. So why do you think that that rule was bad, it was the sensible thing to do.
What does 'our people' mean? White House staff? Are you sure they would have been arrested or are you doing a Trump here and making your recollection appear as fact?
We do not have the right to have all information of everything that is discussed at the Whitehouse. Much of what they discuss is classified material.
At least you are totally against wikileaks, Assange, Manning, Snowden etc., that's something.
Of course, we could let a radical left wing group take over and they will make sure anything they deem as unacceptable will cause punishment to the one doing it. The far left is definitely not democratic in nature, even though they call themselves democrats, they are expressing dictatorship qualities, their way or no way.
The left are expressing 'dictatorship qualities' but it's you that wants the press arrested? Wow, I couldn't have made that up.
