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.
“Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government: When this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved.” Benjamin Franklin
"No right was deemed by the fathers of the government more sacred than the right of speech. It was in their eyes, as in the eyes of all thoughtful men, the great moral renovator of society and government." Frederick Douglass
“Why should freedom of speech and freedom of press be allowed? Why should a government which is doing what it believes to be right allow itself to be criticized? It would not allow opposition by lethal weapons. Ideas are much more fatal things than guns. Why should any man be allowed to buy a printing press and disseminate pernicious opinions calculated to embarrass the government?” Vladimir Lenin

A recent poll found that one-third of registered Democratic respondents feel Americans have "too much freedom to speak freely."
The survey found that Democrats more frequently favor censorship and restrictions on First Amendment rights. It was noted that 42% of individuals under 30 years old stated that it is "more important" to them that the government can place restrictions on speech in the interest of "national security."
Perhaps the two greatest freedoms that a free society must preserve without restrictions would be freedom of speech and private property. These are the two freedoms communists immediately restrict and these are the freedoms most under attack by the communist dominated Democrat Party.
