    That's not exactly true. There are limits on free speech. Yelling fire in a crowded room, for instance. You cannot pontificate in a court room, or come on my property and speechify. Or, for that matter there are limits on this forum.

    Idiotic example. Why do people always come up with this example when it is so easily refuted? It is not illegal to yell fire in a crowded room, it is illegal to yell fire when there is no fire. It is perfectly legal to yell fire when there is fire.

    It is not a restriction on free speech, it is a law to prevent using speech as a weapon to do harm. It is also against the law to use a shovel as a weapon, that does not mean shovels are illegal.

    99% of the law is intent.

    Free speech is the right of ever sovereign individual. The fact is though, the vast majority of people no longer wish to be sovereign individuals because to be so, requires taking responsibility for one's own life. The vast majority are willing to sacrifice their sovereignty and their freedom for the illusion of protection and support.

    We were once a free, proud, and brave people. Today we are serfs with little personal integrity, too cowardly to take responsibility for our own lives or stand up for our rights.

    We are for all intent and purpose domesticated farm animals.

    Also, the constitution was written by and for American citizens. But somehow, it has come to protect people in this country who aren't citizens. I think it's time we used the constitution as toilet paper and do an Ameri-exit.
    My goodness! Even for trash that seems rather primitiv.

    Have you even read it ?

    They ARE great principles to build a Nation on.
    They're timeless, universal and truely revolutionary.
    Natural rights endowed by a creator and not men, a Govt constrained and accountable to the people

    Is there anything specific in our Constitution you disagree with, or are you just here to spam ?

    Your're correct concerning the SCOTUS statement concerning free speech. I didn't bother to quote the full statement since I assumed most people are aware of the full statement.

    You're not correct with the 99% thingy. That's the newly coined Comey definition concocted to let Hillary off the hook. But breaking the law is breaking the law. A LEO or a judge may dismiss the charge and sometimes do. That doesn't change the law.

    America's individual rights of free speech is still one of the crown jewels on the planet.
