In a 2019 article published on the ACLU webpage, Vera Eidelman began with these words: “One of the core purposes of the First Amendment is to allow people, regardless of their views, to hold the government accountable through expression.”
I began writing this letter when I heard about the firing of an employee of Mercer Health after her attendance at a local protest. This protest was in support of pro-choice after the recent major setback by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Why are the Democrats afraid to make America great again? Why are they giving angry speeches against a red background with angry words of division?
