“It’s time for the billboard to be changed” says one of the local residents and Trump haters in last week’s Herald. Well, I disagree. The correct time to remove the billboard identifying this as Trump country is when the owner of the sign wants it removed and not a minute before. It’s a private sign owned by a private individual on their own private property and expresses sentiments of their own which no one else has to agree with. As a matter of fact no one even has to read it.
The right to freedom of expression as well as the Press is another one of those pesky God-given rights that those heroic soldiers of the American Revolution fought and died for. And by the way they ended up with a Constitutional Republic and not a Democracy as the author states. While inappropriately praising democracy as being the reason the United States turned into the greatest country in the world he conveniently ignores the fact that it was the most fraudulent election in recorded history. ie. dead people voting, non-existent people voting , illegal aliens voting, ballot box stuffing ,ballot harvesting, polls remaining open long after election day and the list goes on and on and on.
It’s a small wonder then that more than 70% of the Republicans and at least 30% of the Democrats agree that it was a stolen election. To believe otherwise reminds me of the man who was caught in a fond embrace with the maid. He turned to his wife and said “Now are you going to believe me or are you going to believe what you saw?” I think we should all believe what we saw. Has anyone ever noticed that it’s always the lovers of ” democracy” who are the first to become lovers of fraud when things don’t go their way?
