I am so confused about a certain type of folks who are so adamant about their First and Second Amendment rights but then I’ve had three different friends have Democratic signs stolen from their yards lately.
Taking anything off private property, in my mind, is theft. And I can’t understand that they don’t have respect for my First Amendment rights. The First Amendment guarantees freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely.
I wonder what their justification is, although I realize that this is not a logical way to behave and folks are functioning from fear and hatred. I wish they had the courage to come up to me and just tell me why I should take down my sign. I don’t know any one of my friends who would even consider walking up to someone’s private yard and taking a sign that they didn’t agree with.
I hope that we can settle down and realize that Jesus told us to “Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you”!
