Default Well put, Michael. It's called freedom, but....

It's called freedom of speech, and it is a truly, unbeleivable, valuable Right; that way too many take for granted or misunderstand. Same with some of our other basic, God-given Rights.

Example: I may not like the message some group spouts when they march down mainstreet, but the same Constitutional Law that lets them; will also let me march or speak my message.

It's the same on these boards, as long as we stay within the rules, we have the right to our opinion.

Always remember: It's only your opinion. You are entitled to it, but the other guy is too.
(even if he is wrong :-)

We can all learn a lot from each other, even from those you may disagree with.

These boards are an amazing thing, and I am very grateful to the admins who take the trouble to run them.

If knowledge is power, then we all should be secure enough to not get bent out of shape if someone disagrees or doesn't like our opinion.

Sorry for rambling on. My main point is this: Our freedoms & rights are very precious and need to be preserved.

My favorite quote, paraphrased a bit here, goes something like this:

"Those willing to give up freedom, rights, or liberty, in trade for "perceived" security, deserve neither."

Too many people down through the ages have paid too high of price for those Rights. From ordinary folks, to soldiers, to martyrs. Way too many have died for us to give up these God-given Rights so easily. How quickly we forget.

Enough soapbox,
DaveH
