    ARP may be coming to an end?

    It just may happen folks... not only here, but all over the internet if the Feds are allowed to regulate it. Government censorship will become the norm, and conservative thoughts will be silenced under penalty of fines, jail, seizure, and who knows what else.

    Not just the Feds either...the UN, the EU....the evil progressive globalist's that fear the truth.

    Once these rights are taken away, you don't get them back.

    You mean like Trump fears what the Washington Post says when he revoked their press credentials in the most stunningly and open challenge to the freedom of the press since I don't know when?

    "One of the things that is critical for this country is to reassert the value of the First Amendment, the fact that robust discourse, that is sometimes cacophonous, is nonetheless a value, in fact it creates value,” said Pai.
    How did Trump just reassert the value if the freedom of the press?

    Not that I disagree with the article, mind you. It just seems that people want to pick and choose. So, in one case freedom of speech is good but in others it isn't?

    And people scoff at me when I say pprogressives are evil and twisted.

    Unbelievable. But when our nominee says similar things about shutting down press that he disagreess with, do we have a leg to stand on?

    Trump has a right to refuse to allow liars to be at his conferences or fly with him on trips. I wouldn't let reporters from a commie rag sheet be a guest either. Thank you very much

    And there you have it folks!

    Freedom of Speech is only important if one agrees with it!

    This party is in one sorry state to go against such a fundamental and guaranteed (supposedly I guess?) Constitutional right!

    For as much conversation about the constitution that we have on ARP, sometimes I am left stunned and then can only wonder if some here have ever actually READ the damn thing!

    You folks have made it into a hate forum... clearly a conservative bias. No one is censoring what you are expressing. I feel there needs to be a balance between conservatives and liberals.

    This place is always great for a laugh. These guys have to get their pent up anger out somehow.

    I totally agree. It is quite entertaining to watch. But also in such amazement of what we have here.

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only who reads these posts for a laugh. And a disappointed head shake....
