As a Candidate for Citrus County Commission, District 1, Countywide for 2012, I was recently invited to a political forum along with my opposition, although I had been admonished by a representative of the sponsors that if I refused for my speech to be censored, I would be asked to leave. Along with this warning a quote was made mention of by President Ronald Reagan – that there should be no criticism of Republicans.
I am a Republican, but I am sure that President Reagan WOULD Criticize anyone – even one entitled "Republican" if that individual(s) does not "Preserve, Protect and Defend" the U.S Constitution – that includes "Freedom of Speech or of the Press"!
I must make a stand against this or any Censorship, as a Candidate for Citrus County Commission, and as President of the Ronald Reagan Republican  Assembly for the West Central Florida Region: I and my organization DO Stand for Freedom of Speech or of the Press given by our Creator and established in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution!
President Reagan REFUSED to Accept Censorship – control of what He said, as at a similar public forum at Nashua, New Hampshire, on 2/23/80, after a moderator had ordered his microphone turned off as Reagan was about to speak – he said "I am paying for this microphone" he insisted on speaking as he wished. Furthermore, if Reagan had submitted to the attempted censorship of his speech in Berlin, Germany, 6/12/87 -  he would never have said Mr. Gorbachev: "Tear Down This Wall !" If he had allowed his freedom to speak – censored: "This Wall" also known as "the Iron Curtain" Might Still Remain Intact and Freedom Vanquished!
The invitation to speak as a Candidate is appreciated, although whether or not I do attend, I shall not submit to surrendering my First Amendment Right of Free Speech!
REASON – THIS IS AMERICA!

I am paying for this microphone!

Nashua, New Hampshire, on 2/23/80, after a moderator had ordered his microphone turned off as Reagan was about to speak – he said "I am paying for this microphone" he insisted on speaking as he wished. Furthermore, if Reagan had submitted to the attempted censorship of his speech in Berlin, Germany, 6/12/87 -  he would never have said Mr. Gorbachev: "Tear Down This Wall !" If he had allowed his freedom to speak – censored: "This Wall" also known as "the Iron Curtain" Might Still Remain Intact and Freedom Vanquished!
