Bush CREATED free speech zones. The blame lies at the Republicans feet. if the "tea party" people had any brains they would be going after the congress members that are taking away freedoms instead of being distracted by inconcequential tax bills.
This is why I have ZERO respect for the Tea Party. They are just a distraction that has no real american goal. Fight for the frigging constitution, demand the PATRIOT act get repealed. Stop your baby whining about a 0.00001% tax to save the bees.
