It usually costs money to communicate an idea to a large audience. But no one would seriously contend that a limitation on the expenditure of money to print a newspaper would not deprive the publisher of freedom of the press. Nor can the fact that it costs money to make a speech – whether it be hiring a hall or purchasing time on the air – make the speech any less an exercise of First Amendment Rights. Justice William O. Douglas
Whenever a state seeks to enforce ‘substantive equality,’ in society, the principles of free speech, private property, and individual freedom inevitably raise insurmountable obstacles to the totalitarian project and are invariably suppressed. David Horowitz
As a junior member in the US House, he was a major force: He wrote and then spearheaded passage of the Superfund law. He even authored the US nuclear negotiating position. And at a time when President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev faced off on the superpower stage, Gore had his own meeting with Gorbachev. And, of course, he created the Internet. At various times in his political career, Gore, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has said all those things about himself and his family. None are quite true. Some are exaggerations grown up around kernels of biographical fact. Others are simply false. A few, like the boastful claim about the Internet, have become comic fodder, even for Gore. Al Gore

“The press is prepared, and striving to prepare the public, for American shooting in the Far East,” according to a November 1941 memo sent to Henry G. Morgenthau Jr., the Secretary of the Treasury. (from Countdown to Pearl Harbor)
If anyone thinks that the US press was truly free and without an agenda, they are incorrect. The vast majority of the US press has been on the side of authoritarians – whether fascist, socialist, or communist – for more than a century.
Liberty is not the byword of the press in the United States, power and influence is.
If a man does only what is required of him, he is a slave. The moment he does more, he is a free man. A.W. Robertson
If you are afraid of loneliness, don’t marry.
Pitbull rails against Castro and communism in Cuba and yet supports the authoritarian party in the US. Supporting the Bernie, Biden, Hillary side is supporting the same bankrupt philosophy that the democrat slave owners in the old South had and that they are attempting to impose on people today. A socialist dictatorship that AOC and that crowd advocate for is no better than that in Cuba.
Whether socialist, communist or fascist, the end goal is the same. No freedom and someone else controlling you and your life.
Socialism is the gateway drug to communism. The sooner that Pitbull realizes that, the better.
That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. Abraham Lincoln

There is nothing so powerful as truth,–and often nothing so strange. Daniel Webster
