Freedom of speech comments are appreciated

Thank you for your "to the point" opinion on the lack of the right of Freedom of Speech in this country of late. I greatly appreciated your comments, and whole-heartedly agree!

When we stifle expressed opinions, we stifle individual thought, which then stifles intelligent discourse, problem solving and ingenuity too.

It is the basic freedom of this country's success and prosperity!

Sometimes, I really believe that it is the unintelligent folks in this world that fear this freedom the most, and because of this fear they attempt to stifle it to prevent them from revealing their stupidity? Michelle Traynor, Network/Congregational Relations Chair, Family Promise of Genesee County
