    present his case in pre-scheduled events in community centers that my understanding is were canceled, that the intent is to prevent his viewpoint from being heard, not listening to it and opposing it with debate, facts, and logic.

    the basic values that led our founding fathers and mothers to enshrine the right of free speech in our Bill of Rights, which is usually thought of as part of our Constitution were the values to which I was referring.

    And, this is one of the most distinctive an noble aspects of our constitution in my opinion. One which I am proud of the value expressed by the phrase, "I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will fight to the death, for your right to say it.

    Some Americans are surprised that many other countries do not have similar rights, or than many do not even have constitutions or bills of of human rights. Even I'm told, England.

    As Americans we should be proud of these accomplishments, form of government and values and espouse and protect them as all of our Congressman and President must take an oath to do.
