Election 2008: http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/primaries/results/candidates/#val=1918 "When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross." - Sinclair Lewis "Those Who Would Sacrifice Liberty for Security Deserve Neither." -Benjamin Franklin "We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home." - Edward R. Murrow "If we confuse dissent with disloyalty — if we deny the right of the individual to be wrong, unpopular, eccentric or unorthodox — if we deny the essence of racial equality then hundreds of millions in Asia and Africa who are shopping about for a new allegiance will conclude that we are concerned to defend a myth and our present privileged status. Every act that denies or limits the freedom of the individual in this country costs us the . . . confidence of men and women who aspire to that freedom and independence of which we speak and for which our ancestors fought." – Edward R. Murrow, Ford Fiftieth Anniversary Show, CBS and NBC, June 1953, "Conclusion." Murrow: His Life and Times, A.M. Sperber, Freundlich Books, 1986 "We will not walk in fear, of one another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason if we dig deep in our history and doctrine and remember that we are not descended from fearful men, not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate and to defend causes which were for the moment unpopular. We can deny our heritage and our history, but we cannot escape responsibility for the result. There is no way for a citizen of the Republic to abdicate his responsibility." - Edward R. Murrow, From the March 9, 1954, "See It Now" television broadcast on Senator Joe McCarthy. "The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else." - Theodore Roosevelt, May 7, 1918 If you couldn't tell from the above, this is a thread to discuss the good the bad and the ugly of U.S. and world politics. All political views are allowed as well as the labeling of politicians and their supporters with whatever adjectives you want except of messages with personal attacks towards another poster and/or using foul language.
