The only thing protecting your right to...

free speech is the vast majority of people in this country who support the piece of paper saying you have the right to free speech. Your refusal to acknowledge this fact demonstrates an unwillingness to engage in intellectually honest dialogue.

The conditions you're complainig about, rigged voting etc., are nothing new and that's why freedom is not free, we must continually work to maintain individual liberties. And another fact you refuse to acknowledge is that in spite of recurring tyranny, history demonstrates that the evolution of rights, and limited government to protect those rights, has greatly improved the human condition.

The human condition will continue to improve because people will continue to rebel against tyranny and proper education will eventually create societies capable of deterring tyranny before it occurs. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, the long arc of the universe bends toward justice. And based on empirical evidence, this is true.
