I’ve spent a bit of time reading why liberals spend so much time and effort to protest President Donald J. Trump.
In reality they are not attacking President Trump. He lost the popular vote therefore liberals declare it’s their constitutional right to protest because they say “he’s not my president”.
What they are really doing is attacking American voters who “exercised” their constitutional right to vote for the candidate they chose.
This kind of reminds me of the old bucket we used to have out back. It wasn’t the prettiest looking bucket, dented, worn and had a hole in it, but it was handy. We knew about the hole, and if we wanted to carry water we had to do and do it fast.
The liberal excuse of “he’s not my president” is their bucket. It’s not pretty, worn out by now and it has holes in it, but it’s handy.
But by what stretch of their imagination do they feel attacking anyone is their constitutional “right”?
Let us look at freedom of speech and free speech, two vastly different things and free is not always free.
The freedom of speech guaranteed by the constitution carries with it responsibility and there are boundaries. Boundaries are easily crossed over with personal and vicious attacks leading to violence against another or the destruction of personal or public property and are not protected by the constitution.
Free speech allows one to speak freely in private or public settings but also freedom to not speak.
What about liberal public speakers being shut down or violently attacked by conservatives exercising their constitutional rights?
How often do you hear of conservative public speakers defending the president, suffer from immediate and often violent reactions by liberals who claim only to be exercising their constitutional rights?
The constitution guarantees freedom of speech and freedom to vote, not freedom of attacking someone, their character or their vote. Not to rig elections, harass voters or use bully tactics on those who voted differently.
The constitution set in place the Electoral College as a means of insuring each state a fair and equal vote when electing a president.
Historically we hear cries from the liberal left about abolishing the Electoral College after an election where the popular vote is constitutionally overruled by the Electoral College.
That’s just not going to happen.
Everyone has opinions about everything and when it comes to religion and politics many people have multiple opinions.
You may have a right to express your opinion, but you do not have a right to force your opinion on another.
You do have the responsibility to honor the opinion of others, even when they differ from yours. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
