"It is the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins." Benjamin Franklin The U.S.A. today?
"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
"It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority."
"It is the duty of the patriot to protect its country from its government."
"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
— Benjamin Franklin

Then why would u support hillary killary clinton?
She's against all things listed by the founders.
Kind of odd you agree. Or have you come over to the "Dark Side".
i thought u could figure it out...your guys are the tyrants. sorry if it wasnt clear.
Leslie, thanks for clarifying your lack of reasoning.
I was in horror that you might have come to your senses.
Keep on keeping on.....
oh, my sixth sense is fine. tomorrow we'll know how we proceed.
Leslie, who said anything about a 6th sense?
I was wondering if you had any contact with your 5 senses.
Apparently not, since you could not understand my comment.
The tyranny in the name of manners and feelings is how you get police in the UK more afraid of being called racist than going after Muslim rape gangs targeting underaged white girls (Rotherham rape scandal), censoring speech and print in the name of not offending Muslims but who cares if you mock Christians on their major holidays, censoring coverage of major political scandals because the liberal candidate is a woman or ethnic minority.
Even worse was when that homeless black woman was beat up by liberal protestors saying "you spread hate, you get hate", the liberal bullies beating up a homeless woman because she supported Trump. This is proof that true evil is enabled by ideologies that say as long as you cheerlead our cause, anything is allowed.
It is fascism in the name of feelings.
Tamara, if we had an intelligent citizenry, none of what you talk about would pass for "truth". The people who accept the propaganda participate in the "religion of ignorance". Thus, they support the tyranny that we have today in the US. Government.
