Louisiana News & politics focus on Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Louisiana legislature

Are the issues evolving around Donald Trump, less about what he says, per se, but more about the way he says it?  Is this the reason that many across the US (and outside) are upset with The Donald and his policies, such as illegal immmigration and preventing Muslims from entering the US?  Or, is Donald Trump is simply speaking his mind, and the audience should simply get over it, as he is articulating what so many Americans have felt, but have simply been so reluctant to express.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech.
