Project rights of majority, not exclusively minority

Our idiots in D.C. are once again thinking about stepping on the majority of Americans’ constitutional rights because of their stupidity, keenness, arrogance and appeasing to the various minorities within our society.

Yes, minorities have rights that have and should be respected, but not when they step on the rights of the majority, such as in recent cases of dropping West Point’s and public schools' reciting the word “God” from their oaths to the complete inane calls for what not to wear this Halloween that might offend certain people.

Under the First Amendment, we all have the right to say what we want as long as it is within the law. Yes, minorities have a right to be offended by the use of the word “God” as much as the majority has the right to say it.

The law says you cannot censor another American’s right to free speech and also says you do not have to say it yourself if it offends you. So do not say it, but do not tell me I cannot say it!
