Many in Big Blue Nation have turned their backs on Ashley Judd due to her politics

I searched the United States Constitution all weekend looking for passages invoking freedom of speech/personal opinion within certain groups, political parties, citizens .. I found none. Indeed, what sort of country would this be if there were such text within our founding documents. Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany ... those have been done before and failed.
'I may not believe what you say; but, I will fight to death for your right to say them' goes the famous quote. Ashley Judd is outspoken, she has an American Right to be and do so, as does any other citizen. Don't like what you hear? You have a right to ignore her words, mute the TV and more on. No one has the right to silence her ... this is American or at least it has been so far.

Ashley Judd is alright in my book (and I actually read hers). In spite of political differences, we very much share the same goals as by most Americans do; we are just too blinded by our consumed hatred that crosses too many lines in the last 30 years. I would love to sit for dinner with her (my wife beside me), and talk issues.

The number one aspect of sports should be that it is non-religious and non-political. And March Madness is a celebration of the achievements of athletes and teams.
