Ok all, this has been rolling around in my head several days now. Im still all in a tizy about it so forgive me if i digress. and note i heard this news report at 5:30 in the AM on so i did not get the name of the reporter etc.
Anyway-i hear this report that something like 40% of Americans think the Constitution needs to be changed, that we have TOO MUCH freedom!!!!
Ok at this point boyfriend atty and i are looking at each other and the radio in utter amazement, we turn it up and pay rapt attention.
The report was saying Americans felt the 1st amendment (one of my personal favs) is too open and that we should have less freedom of press and religon.
EXCUSE ME DID I MISS SOMETHING? are not those 2 MAJOR tenants of the formation of our contry. At this point ill admit i take a more Jeffersonian view of the Consitution.
Has the radical religous right finaly got THAT much influance? Are people THAT willing to turn off their brains and let someone tell them to buy into all "we are good they are bad" ideas?
*gets visions of "1984"*
Anyone else hear this report or care to comment?
Pissed off free thinking PG
