BlogsforBush.com: where free speech means agreeing with the Republican Agenda

I have been a recent visitor of the Blogsforbush.com website, since shortly before the election.

I have been responding to blanket posts about Bush mandates, unemployment under Bush, etc.

My DISAGREEING posts have been deleted... and passed off as "trolling."

Am I to be surprised that this is a site that supports the Administration that created the Patriot Act?

I have always believed that an open dialogue is key to learning, understanding, respecting a different point of view.

As such, you won't find me deleting posts here on RRBBS just because I disagree with the poster.

To the moderators of blogsforbush.com: Bad form, folks. Just what are you afraid of?

Here is a sample of a deleted post there (qualifying as "trolling"):

I don't feel that Bush's victory is a mandate by the people for Bush. It is a mandate by the people against Osama Bin Laden and gay marriage.

It turns out that I have been banned from posting at blogsforbush.com.

I made a mistake as to the first quote that got me banned:

On the issue of whether Bush had a mandate, I stated: "I think that it should be noted that John Kerry received more votes than Ronald Reagan ever received in a single election."

Free speech rules!

Shon and Dr. Rub:

Would never happen.
