Your View: Thought police are taking signs

By Mary L. Myers, Mankato

— Oct. 19, my "yes" sign for the marriage amendment was stolen from my lawn. The "no" signs on my neighbors' lawns remain standing, however.

The "yes" signs have been disappearing all over town. Apparently, freedom of speech is not to be tolerated by the thought police who prowl about our neighborhoods in the dark of night.

Folks, we have entered into a period of soft tyranny in this nation. One by one, our freedoms are being taken away if we don't tow the politically correct line.

If we cower in fear today, tomorrow we will find ourselves in bondage to the secular state. Remember this when you vote.
