"Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall"

Today is the 25th anniversary of Ronald Reagan's famous Brandenburg gate speech, or as it is more commonly known, the "Tear Down This Wall" speech. Two years later, the wall came down.

As I said in an earlier entry, the fall of the Berlin Wall restored the most fundamental political  right--the right to vote with your feet. It's a right that needs to be vigorously defended, even in a nominally free country like the United States. Just ask Eduardo Saverin.
