George, It is interesting to be on the same side with you politically. So often I disagree, not so much with your intent, but on the way to get there. On this, though, there can be no debate. The Bill of Rights makes no provision for offensive or even inaccurate speech. It protects all speech, and whether I agree with what someone is saying or not, I will always defend their right to say it. In fact, I want to express my respect for you on this issue. As I stated, I sit across the aisle from you politically, and while I read the forum regularly, the only times I comment are when my views clash with your own. You have never blocked my comments and have occasionally responded to them personally, and I respect and commend that. Today, upon seeing the last few paragraphs (especially) of your above post, I nodded and walked away from the computer, pleased -though not surprised- by your stance. Then I thought about things and decided that, while I'm only one usually-dissenting voice, that I would express my agreement on this occasion when our views harmonize. I think we would be better off as a country and a people if more would celebrate the things we agree on and work to better those aims together.
