40. Done-K&R
I may not like what you say but I will fight to my death for your right to say it. Democrats should never fight to silence free speech in this country. I thought what Don Imus said was foul and disgusting, but I couldn't support firing him for saying it. I supported the advertisers dropping him, pundits refusing to go on his program and listeners turning his show off. That is you fight for change, not asking for him to be fired. Every one has the right to be as dumb as they want in this country. No one makes you listen to them. Do you want to change that? Either you believe in free speech or you don't. Period.
