As I write this and you eventually read it, we are exercising our
Constitutional rights to assemble peaceably and speak freely. The
importance of these rights were made clear by Thomas Jefferson
himself who said "Where the press is free and every man able to
read, all is safe." As such, and to re-secure our further rights to life,
liberty and property, I avail you of political analysis that reveals the
truth on matters of the day.
Yet it requires nerve, and I daresay, responsibility, of both the author
and the reader to meet as we do and question the despots and haters
of freedom and responsibility. On this matter I again defer to Thomas
Jefferson who also said "Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to
the tempestuous sea of liberty."
May I also add, "Let freedom ring."
