I make it a habit not to vote for AM posts, especially from established members. I personally feel that we have freedom of speech, but we also have responsiblity of speech.

If someone feels the need to say something, they should stand up and accept the rewards or backlash.

Had this node been attached to a real person, willing to stand up and take the resulting votes (++ or --) from this post, I would have voted ++ for its content and its courage.

As it is, I have lost a little respect in the writer, as they feel unwilling to take the consequences of their actions.

UPDATE:

I don't believe in the anonymous nature of the internet. I truly believe that the 1st Ammendment comes with a price, and that price is the responsibility of standing behind one's actions or words. I do not post anonymously, nor do I believe people should be able to hide behind a cloak of anonymity.

If anyone has anything they wish to say to me, say it. We Americans have every right to say what we want, but we need to have the guts to stand up for it and defend it. Our freedoms were bought with the blood of many, so don't dishonor those men and women by abusing your freedoms.
