Readers Write: Blocking free speech

When I see the campaign signs of Tom McClintock purposefully placed directly in front of the signs of his opponent for 4th Congressional District, Charlie Brown, in numerous locations around town, I gather the following information about his supporters:

1. They flout common rules of polite discourse, civility, and courtesy.

2. They approve of blocking the free speech of those with whom they disagree.

3. They believe that deceit and guile are necessary for their candidate to prevail.

I want nothing to do with these attitudes. I will vote for Charlie Brown for U.S. Congress.
