You break the law by what you do, not by what you think or say in private. If your customers don’t want to buy your product or your employees don’t want to work for you because of who they think you are, that’s their business.

The most fundamental tenets freedom are violated when private ownership can be disturbed by politicians who don’t like you, how you look, how you think, or what you say in private.

Thought police have no place in a free society, but they are now active in positions of power, such as majority leader of the US Senate, in our supposedly free nation.

What exactly is Reid’s notion of “morally right” when he thinks it is moral to take a man’s property because of a private conversation, recorded surreptitiously? But he is not bothered that the man, Donald Sterling, is an open adulterer, and that his remarks were recorded by the young tart who sells her services to him.

Private property is the oxygen of freedom and of capitalism. It’s the job of our government to protect property, not invade it.

It’s no accident that we are tottering economically and morally when politicos like Harry Reid have and wield the power they do.

It’s really time to make some changes.
