It's time to enact new laws to stop the thieves from stealing campaign signs. The thief's goal is stifle free speech, steal and destroy property, and drive the costs of the candidate running for office up since any stolen signs will have to be replaced. The new law should make the stealing campaign signs preceding an election carry a mandatory minimum sentence of 2 years combined with a $25,000 fine. In addition, the government should be required to identify the thieve's political affiliation and publish that information in local papers for a year thereby discouraging a party from recruiting surrogates to engage in such devious conduct.

Yes, creating a police state is the obvious choice for fostering free speech.
