Letter to the editor: Freedom of speech, one of our greatest freedoms

Freedom of speech, one of our greatest freedoms

RE: Letter to editor by Wm. Gibson: ”We’re not all rednecks.”

Sir: “Blatant Tea Party letters?” REALLY?! You should (if you believe) get down on your knees and thank God we live in a country where we are all allowed to voice our opinion without retribution, and also thank the Ramona Sentinel for the good sense to publish both sides of the political spectrum.

Freedom of speech is one of our greatest freedoms, even though you do not agree with the “other side”; which is also a great freedom we all enjoy here in the United States of America. I consider myself to be a “Ramona old-timer,” as you say, and I am offended that you would insinuate that any of us in this wonderful town would be “fooled to think we are all illiterate rednecks from 50 years ago,” when most of us here in Ramona are very much aware of the current state of politics in America.

If being an informed/involved Constitutional Conservative is also considered being a “redneck,” then Mr. Gibson, I am very proud to be a “redneck.” YEE-HAW!
