Righteous Dissent

A March 8 letter says: " ... to dissent on issues that are sacred to the foundations of our great nation is borderline treason." Let's get something straight once and for all. Dissent in word and speech is never, ever treason. Our nation was founded on such ideals as righteous dissent against oppressive governments, and for those who feel their war is more important than our rights as Americans, it's you who are the real traitors, not those who dissent. Peace.
