    "Freedom of speech is the political right to communicate one's opinions and ideas. The term freedom of expression is sometimes used synonymously, but includes any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. In practice, the right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, as with libel, slander, obscenity,[citation needed]sedition (including, for example inciting ethnic hatred), copyright violation, revelation of information that is classified or otherwise."

    "se·di·tion *(s-dshn)
    n.
    1. Conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of a state.
    2. Insurrection; rebellion."
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_speech

    This is why people may be removed from the conservative club without fear of hypocrisy.

    The debate is that many feel their right to freedom of speech was stomped on because they were removed from one club by joining a club set up toward incitement of discontent.

    Pardon me,
    Would you please elaborate?

    It seems that you are referencing a particular event, would you please share the details of the incident?

    OK,

    XXXXXXX

    Let us open up the debate.
    Why is it wrong for people have freedom of speech?
    (Now is your chance XXXXXXX can you cleanly tell us why people should be forced to speak only your opinioin?)

    This Is The CDZ. The Focus is Civil Discourse. No Put Downs, or Name Calling, Other Posters.

    Starting off with what clearly is an insult is not really following the spirit or the rules of the CDZ. If you actually wish to have a good debate, please refrain from this.
