Preserving The American Political Philosophy: The State of Maine and its Freedom of Speech Crisis

There is a controversy going on in the State of Maine over a Senator Willette expressing views about President Obama that some do not like. You might call it a Polite Society VS a Freedom Of Speech controversy but of course the Maine main stream media does not acknowledge that freedom of speech is part of the controversy. When I posted a expressing that freedom of Speech is in fact the larger issue, it was blocked by the Portland Press Herald but posted on Facebook. So here it is. Ironically by blocking my post about freedom of speech, the Portland Press herald reinforced the point I was making. If Senator Alfond thinks teh larger issue is how the rest of teh world views Maine's attitude toward immigrants- he might consider factoring in how immigrants might view Maine as an anti-freedom of speech state, which is what many immigrants come to the USA to escape.
