“It is a paradox that every dictator has climbed to power on the ladder of free speech. Immediately on attaining power each dictator has suppressed all free speech except his own. —Herbert Hoover

President Hoover never accomplished much as he presided over the beginning of the great depression. He may have been aware of a young Austrian who later rose to power in Germany. How could he know that free speech could be such an expensive commodity? I'm really not sure it exists anymore in America. I suppose it does. I hear Rush and Sean constantly railing about the democrats wanting to shut them up; to take away their right to speak. Now THERE are a couple of paranoiacs. And they think their feet don't fit in their mouths.
