Liberal media silences debate

The political gridlock in our Capitol eliminates any real debate about solutions. Die-hards on both sides have dug in their heels more than ever. We see our elected leaders taking vacations, paying no attention to the very serious issues before them. The media has been shown to be more biased than at any time in our past, adding to the feelings of anger, and frustration, we all share with one another. Therein lies the problem. While we share our intense feelings within our circle of friends we dare not express an opinion in public. The politically correct police have literally choked the life out of any dissent. We see personal assassination, and other vindictive actions taken against those that choose to express an opinion contrary to the pablum the often very liberal, very biased, media insist on feeding us.

It would be a field day.
