Why are Obama signs being stolen from yards?

-A +A
Our Obama for President sign was stolen from our front yard. This is happening to other property owners throughout the greater Auburn area who have Obama signs in their yards. Our signs for other Democratic candidates were left untouched, which raises a disturbing question: Why are Obama signs being targeted? What are the motives of the people responsible for these acts of vandalism? Placing signs for candidates on our private property is an exercise of our right to free speech, protected by the U.S. Constitution. A healthy democracy depends on the ability to disagree, with respect for all parties. George Hoffecker, Donna Burgess Meadow Vista
