Farewell to Ron Silver

Activist, scholar, actor. He ran the political spectrum, but he was always honest about where he stood. And the man knew how to get things done. Fare thee well, sir, fare thee well.

God bless Ron Silver, he was a so-called 'Liberal' who AT LEAST came to his senses about Jihadis and brutal Dictators. He knew they would destroy America, and Hollywood if they could. He realized that if America goes down the tubes, then the whole planet is doomed.

You were great Ron! Time Cop, Arrival, Wiseguy, and The West Wing among many were particularly good. Thank you for everything, especially your courage, RIP.
here's an absurd thought -
our Supreme GOD
hates ALL Liberals

who admit their errors
and move Right on defense

absurd thought -
God of the Universe hates
the principles of FREEDOM

fascism comes from the Right
that is a lie of the Left

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says

because you hate dictators
and don't blame America
All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. Without freedom of speech there can be no real freedom.
