Of such differences of opinion are great debates and less great political campaigns made. It is important to our way of life that gentlefolk of conviction be able to express their ideas in the arena of public opinion. Debates and honest reporting by an unbiased media assures us of an informed electorate able to pick the perfect candidate for a particular office. We all know how this has worked. Not at all well, for any number of reasons.
Now three important liberal voices in the Democrat party have a solution to the public dissonance that we have all been subject to. Andrew Cuomo, Bill de Blasio, and Chuck Schumer have decided that it would be best if the first amendment were rescinded with regard to conservative speech. Not only that, but that all conservatives should get out of their state, New York. Henceforth, only liberals allowed. Imagine, if you will, a world run by these three fine gentlemen.
Now their ideas may dazzle the elite Illuminati who make up the ranks of the most "progressive" New Yorkers, but I don't think they are charming the four wheel drive and deer rifle crowd of northern New York State. I am sure that they are elated that their own elected governor would like half of the population to just go elsewhere.
As I have written before, liberals look at the bill of rights a tad differently. Liberal speech is free speech. Conservative speech is knuckle dragging neanderthal grunts and has no place in society. As far as the second amendment is concerned, no guns for civilians except for those that guard rich liberals and their enclaves.
The thing that I find most personally troubling about liberal-speak is the uncivil tone. They have no respect for anyone but themselves. I go on Facebook on occasion to keep in contact with family that is not close by. Yesterday I came across a communication between a liberal cousin and her liberal friend. Referring to some Republican politicians, the sentiment was, "they should have been drowned at birth". Thoughts like this are not rare in the liberal lexicon.
It was not too many years ago when politicians could work together and public debate was polite. The world has changed a great deal since then. Maybe not for the better.
