: Socialists get sacked, beaten up, arrested, phonebooked (no bruises) blowtorched (when you are going to disappear anyway).

: Usually just sacked and letters to the editor usually just don't get published.

: If you manage to outsmart a radio shock jock, they can cut you off before you go to air, you get labeled politically correct.

: I have said enough

enough words maybe, but not much sense.

What are you saying? if youre suggesting that socialists are being rounded up and tortured then show hoe and where and by whom.

what are you trying to say that gets you cut off, if it is you that tries to get through.

And incidently, free speech means the freedom to express, it does mean others have to supply you with column inches and airtime just because you have an opinion.
