Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs

No ST, I am an opinionated ass pretty much wherever I go. Last time I checked, I had that right under the 1st Amendment. But I guess I was wrong, and I don't have that right anymore. No problem guys, Ill just stop talking. It's apparent that your side of the issue is the only side of the issue that has the validity of the 1st Amendment guarantee of freedom of speech and any dissenting viewpoints should not be discussed. I understand now.
^^ well, I attempted to communicate to you that your opinion was welcome (minus your stance on what you believe true about other posters), but it seems that you just ignored all that I said so you could continnue to stay off topic and further the meaninglessness that this thread is starting to become. In a simple experiment to examine whether or not your 1st Amendment rights have been trampled, lets take a look at what we've got so far: you stated your opinion, and no legal action or otherwise was launched as a direct result of your application of your 1st Amendment right. Yep, looks like your 1st Amendment rights are still fully intact. Having this as a "proof" of your 1st Amendment rights still being fully intact, I would like to humbly request that you refrain from being butthurt because noone has turned against you. It's merely an example of others also choosing to advocate THEIR 1st Amendment rights. See how beautiful it is? THAT is the true beauty of America!! Now, all we need to do is harness this incredible power (i.e.: return back to what it once was) and we can all enjoy the fruits of this INCREDIBLE nation and all it has to offer.

Yeah I do not know what power the provost marshals have beyond their area. If the military was actually going to serve notices and restore the constitution, wouldn't the notices be better served by a 4 star general? I think it is just a group that mailed them in, maybe one of them was a marshal, who knows? Maybe they just claimed that to get some attention.
All of this resistance does seem rather suspect. I don't agree with almost anything that is going on, but where was this resistance when Bush was in office? The patriot act is a CLEAR violation of the constitution. The Iraq war was based on a LIE. But then again, maybe it just took the public a while to realize what was going on, and we're connecting dots that aren't supposed to be connected... just speculation either way.
