Did you want to exercise your "free speech" tonight?
Certainly there has to be something you wanted to say to our government.
The whole country is listening.
This is an interesting thread to consider now that we're seeing these laws passed that most of us never thought we'd see in this nation of ALL places. I don't think anything we say will make any difference now though either good or bad.
I hate to throw this out there because some people do worry easily, but it's just the truth as I see it on this with regard to these new detention options they seem to have. The lists they will be going off, if it actually comes to that, were drawn up over the past few YEARS...not weeks. Those of us who may or may not be on their lists won't get off them now by simply having a public change of tone....and people who have been 'good' won't get thrown on them without being awfully obnoxious
I think that IF we actually DO see an organized move to detain Americans around the nation for dissent, it will definitely start with the loud mouths on the net, radio and organizations who have a long running and well established record for speaking out. and It wouldn't be just the casual poster/contributor or person who very recently joined the crowd of citizens feeling fed up. That category is simply TOO long and wide, even by the rumored FEMA camp standards.
