With Donald Trump coming to Hartford tonight, we are being promised a true three ring circus by protester's coming into our City to wreak havoc. Not from the Trump campaign but by outsiders who want to shut his message down
Did I miss something over the years? Isn't a Democracy about putting ideas out there, whether you agree with them or not. We all have the right to say and listen to anyone we want. Then we have the ultimate choice to make of who we support with our vote.
It is a pretty simple theory and those who wish to shut down that process through, shouting, yelling, chaos and pepper spray should really look back. They should be looking back at the men and women who have fought and died for their right to go out there and act like idiots, injuring other citizens as well as Police Officers in the process.
If you don't like Donald Trump, don't vote for him. Go out there and work your ass of for the candidate you believe in, but please don't disenfranchise those people who really want to listen and learn about the candidates. It just seems hypocritical that the same people that are trying to shut down the Trump message are many of the same people that have been marginalized over the years by the same narrow-mindedness that they themselves are now exhibiting.
Our Democracy allows for a free exchange of ideas and thoughts everyday by everyone, and that includes Donald Trump and his supporters and even the people that just want to listen to him before making up their minds on which candidate earns their vote.
