Miss Me Yet? It's About Freedom
It's About he Freedom to Support Freedom!
The new billboard with the question, “Miss me yet?” beside President Bush’s photo is an absolute hoot and it is a perfectly timed attention getter.
With all that’s been happening in our government, with the middle of the nation at a standstill due to a storm, with the war’s state of affairs in these circumstances, this billboard speaks volumes to the world.
Leftists would do well to ignore it, but they are simply unable to do so. Wisdom on the part of their cause would be to leave it alone. Apparently, though, it is impossible for them.
Is it that they are afraid of what trying to ignore the tea partyists did for their side, or is it just not surprising since wisdom would be the factor behind the negative action they need to display.
No matter, the issue isn’t about political parties or their agendas. Turns out that the issue is really about freedom. With the outcry against the billboard so obviously displaying a desire to shut down free speech, the real point of putting up this billboard has been disclosed.
Deliberately or inadvertently, I don’t know, but the folks behind the “Miss me yet?” billboard have done us all a great favor in displaying their creativity. They have pointed out that there are some in our country who would shut down free speech while they defend their own viciousness toward others. It's a telling situation.
When I first saw a picture of this billboard I thought it was probably a computer generated fake. I seriously doubted anyone had that much humor left after the events of this last year.
I really thought that people were feeling too hopeless to come up with the idea, but evidently not. Today “Surely it’s not real,” turned into, “Well how ‘bout that!” And I couldn't help but smile.
The "Miss Me Yet?" billboard points out that there are those in this country who will shut down free speech even as they defend their own vicious responses toward anyone who disagrees with them.
Is It About Freedom?
It's About Free Speech
I expect that I very well might vote for President Bush again if given the opportunity, but it would all depend on who else was running. That’s the American way!
However, that issue is now totally sidelined by the question of whether citizens have the right to free speech in our country. The character of the battle we are in, the reality of what we are up against should be examined carefully.
Are we free to say that the current administration is getting us ever deeper in debt while blaming President Bush? Are we free to say that we don’t like the trend toward socialism that is being forced upon us?
Are we free to question what is going on politically? Are we free to state our concerns, to encourage others to think for themselves, to tell the truth if we know a lie has been told? Don’t we still live in America?
The President Bush billboard is about freedom and it’s an important dialogue to keep in the forefront of all the issues we face as a country. Individuals, businesses, and all political parties still have the right to free speech in our country.
It is wisdom to protect America's free speech whether we agree with the speech or not for without that freedom, we are in bondage. It's a simple matter to understand and an important matter to give attention to.
We need the freedom to call a lie a lie, to call a thief a thief, to call a predator a predator. To proclaim our beliefs, to announce the truth, to vote according to our beliefs is our right. If we want to hold on to our freedoms we will give this issue attention.
We need to consider all that the issue of free speech among a patriotic people entails. We should talk and write about this issue, and we should actively support free speech wherever and whenever we can.
