To the Editor,
Stealing political yard signs is bad this year. I devoted two afternoons to putting up Biden/McGrath/Hicks yard signs on U.S. 25 north of Georgetown.
It was a long process, including always knocking on the doors and asking the homeowners for permission to put out the signs — and making sure they were on private property, not on the right of way. A day later, most of them were gone.
In some areas around Georgetown, Democratic signs have been stolen four times already this season. Republicans talk of law and order, but have no respect for other people’s rights to free speech. I thought of stealing their signs, but I didn’t because I’m an honorable man and respect their right to free speech, and vengeance is not honorable.
If you wonder why there aren’t more Democratic signs out — it’s because Republicans have stolen them.
