America must support the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution for any chance at to have liberty and a strong America. Our founders knew this and created the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
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.1
Today, the first amendment is under siege by president Obama. He was advocating for some type of clearing house for free speech to assure it is true. Who makes this determination is not mentioned but I suspect if he implemented this clearing house a statist would be the gatekeeper. Obama’s mentioning this truth squad should send shivers up anyone who supports liberty.
“There has to be, I think, some sort of way in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard, because they just don’t have any basis in anything that’s actually happening in the world,” Obama added. 2
