Congress shall make no law …….; or abridging the freedom of speech,…. This is absolute. Because congress is the only branch of government that has the authority to make law, this would mean there can be no restrictions on freedom of speech.
Freedom of speech is essential for a free nation. It is those who believe in dictatorial restrictions on the people that favor limitation on speech. All aspiring dictators, including the American oligarchs and the Uni party, favor restrictions on speech.
Freedom of speech means that we can express ourselves on matters that are not in favor with popular opinions or with the demands of the aspiring dictators. My right to say that the Democrats are anti-American, that the Uni party is real, and the deep state exists must be protected. When it is not, dictatorship has won.
Even some on the right would say that hate speech must be restricted. The problem with that is that what the right considers to be hate speech the left considers to be truth. What the left considers to be hate speech is what I consider to be truth. We are either all allowed free speech, or a dictator will determine what is or is not allowed. That dictator could be a judge, a bureaucrat, or an executive.
A free nation must have responsible people. A free nation must have people who are interested, informed, and involved. A free nation must have moral people and reasonable people.
If we are to remain free, we must again become moral people, interested people, informed people, and involved people. Sadly, our republic has been transformed into a democracy, our parents have passed their responsibilities to the state, our churches no longer preach from the Bible, our schools have become woke, and the American people are no longer self governing. The above must be corrected to again become a free nation. Freedom of speech is essential to correct our past mistakes.
