Freedom:  “the absence of  necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action”  It is clear that for all the rhetoric by Republicans on Freedom, they have not looked up its definition.  Their policies restrict choices, not expand them.  This is a central theme I hope to bring to my fellow delegates at the National Convention. Everyone has their pet cause but they all have to do with more inclusion and shunning punishment as a remedy for every problem in society.  I hope to hear President Obama emphasize this as he makes his acceptance speech on September 6th at the Bank of America Stadium.  I am sure he will.
