Freedom of Speech from the Four Freedoms serie...

Freedom of Speech from the Four Freedoms series by Norman Rockwell (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Ordinarily I try to remain calm and rational when I write these posts, no matter how egregious the things we are talking about. Today, I’m not even going to try.

I am an American, those who have shed their blood down through the centuries have done so to make this a free country. One of the causes of that freedom is that I have a God-given and Constitutionally protected right to offend anybody I choose to.

Here are the words, ink on parchment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

We instituted a government in this country to guarantee this right, as well as others to “We, the people.” If said government can’t defend my rights instead of campaigning all over the world against them, using my money to pay for it; then they need to resign so that people with enough guts to be Americans can take over, all of them.

If you’re not going to defend the rights of Americans, you are not a fit servant of America.

Get off my property.

    Freedom of speech is defended in the US in a way it is not in most other places – and long may it remain that way.

    • Yup, you’re right, and if we have any sense it will stay that way.

          As long as the US has men like you and SF and women like Rebecca, freedom will stand. :)

  2. What our president, congress and court justices seem to forget is that when they swear to uphold the consitution, they are promising to Protect our Indiviual Freedoms. Protecting our freedoms does not necessarily go hand-in-hand with protecting our persons ( in perfect scenarios, that is the case). With our freedoms, a certain amount of risk is involved. Most right-thinking Americans understand that and accept it. We do not like our federal government taking it upon themselves to decide which freedom can be watered down at any given time for “the greater good.” Even with the election of Romney (which our country desparatly needs to rebound economically) we still have a huge battle ahead with big government thinking. I will not feel that my freedoms are protected until the TSA gropes, the Patriot Act and the DHS cease to exist and the EPA, Department of Education, Dept. of tobacco, alcohol and firearms are reigned in, the 10th ammendment is recognized and celebrated, and excutive orders are curtailed or abolished.

    • Very well said, Freedom. Inherent with liberty is risk, you can’t win if you can’t fail, and that is true in security as well. IF everybody sits still in their box they’ll be safe, everybody will freeze in the dark but, they’ll be safe
