It has been brought to my attention that the Obama signs were stolen from yards this past weekend. I have encouraged anyone who had a sign stolen to notify the sheriff. The signs, are not only costly, but they are a form of “freedom of speech,” part of the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. The person(s) who took them are thieves. That is a very ugly word and it can not be made pretty by calling it a prank, joke, or a game. The person(s) need to take responsibility for their actions; show courage and step forward.
During the election cycle of 2004 the Democrat signs were stolen also. This is just more of the same. Please take note that the Republican signs were not stolen in 2004 nor this year. Character is what you do when no one is looking. Hummmm.
I hope the thieves who took the signs read this and steps forward.
