Response to Let's Try "Brain Freedom" First

 

The best response to FREE SPEECH issues that I have ever seen/heard is in

the movie with Michael Douglas as President and his Girlfriend is Annette Beining (Sp?). I think its called American President. Nonetheless, in this movie, he is forced to give a speech on the ACLU.

"...Paraphrased somewhat ....


" Why shouldn't the President support the ACLU. This is an organization which was formed to protect the constitution of the United States..."Freedom is NOT cheap...You have to be willing to pay for it... You have to allow someone to speak at the top of his voice proporting those things that you would demote at the top of yours".


I have searched for the exact wording for years, but have never found it. If someone has it or knows where it can be had, GREAT.
