People can wrap themselves inside the Constitution, spew anything they
choose to say, stick their tongue out in your face and declare you can't
do anything about what they said. They have Freedom of Speech. Right?
Yes! However, Freedom of Speech, comes married to the responsibility
for ones own actions. If you say it, write it or draw it, be ready to
defend it. Cower in silence, you abdicate your freedom and allow the
bullies and censurers to win. Welcome their challenge, if your argument
is strong, it will stand their tests. If it is weak, you will learn how
to strengthen it. Keep it civil, never personally attack your
opponent. Keep to the central words and actions in the debated issue.
Remain on point. Opponents will often alter and move the debate away
from the point of contention, thus distract you. Be ready, the truth
will prevail in the end!
