Is 'free speech' for Everyone?

The democrats have picked a fight with Rush Limbaugh. They are trying to resurrect the 'fairness' doctrine' through support in the media, Their goal would be partially achieved by stopping the broadcasts of people like Rush Limbaugh.

From a World Net Daily article we read, 'Laughing Out Loud here," Limbaugh continued, "I am being Alinskied. Alinky's Rules for Radicals, Number 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy," Limbaugh said.
"Senate Republicans need to understand this is NOT about me. It is about them, about intimidating them, especially after the show of unity in House. It is about the 2010 and 2012 elections. This is an opportunity for Republicans to redefine themselves after a few years of wandering aimlessly looking for a 'brand' and identity."
Do not doubt for a second that Limbaugh is only their first target. Should they succeed, they will pick the next outspoken person who gets in their way, all the way down to you and me.
Christians, conservatives, and Republicans, and every fair minded citizen needs to get a game plan to oppose these radicals. We could follow their lead and use number 12 of Alinky's Rules for Radicals; but a better game plan might be something like this:
First, take the problems to the highest authority. God Almighty is the governor among the nations. Pray! Ask God to help us and direct our paths. God hates tyranny. God loves righteous behavior. Of course -if you actually want God's help, then you have to live your life according to HIS rules. This leads us to the second thing we must do.
Second - define and reclaim our identity. Do what is right regardless of what liberal ideology and society tells you to do. Stop trying to make the liberals like us and agree with us. That is not going to happen. You can't be nice to a bully and expect them to be civil in return. They are not about doing what is right. They are about getting their way and forcing it on the whole world. Currently - they are 'insulted' by be called 'socialist' - but that is the nicest thing you can call them. They are going down the path toward communism and ultimately global collectivism. Their goal is to force the entire world into their ideological camp.
Third, live by what we claim as our core beliefs. Love God; keep the commandments. Treat others the way we want to be treated. This does not mean we have become door mats. We still have the right to speak out just like anyone else does. This brings us to number four.
Fourth, speak out against tyranny at every opportunity.
