Freedom of Speech-just call me old fashioned

I was brought up that all speech could be delivered in the public square, I do believe that is what the First Amendment of the US Constitution was written for:

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.

I was going to complain about a pastor in California for reading a bible outside a DMV office (a publicly owned property, i.e. public square). I was going to post a video of the wrongful arrest. To my surprise this isn’t an unusual circumstance, there were plenty to choose from on YouTube, to my surprise. What I am wondering is the local governments not adhering to the Amendment. I know it says “Congress”, but when the ACLU takes up arms they don’t seem to care what division of government they go after, from a township to a state government (mmmmmm, have they ever really gone after Congress?). For some unknown reason, locals don’t seem to grasp the spirit nor the letter of the Amendment. These being elected officials scares the socks off me. These brilliant minds can’t even interpret a simple paragraph, yet they write laws within our municipalities which we are supposed to follow. VERY SCARY!

I know it isn’t PC, but that bugger of a First Amendment even protects the evil the Left calls “hate speech”, and shame on me for knowing that.

So call me old fashioned (I guess I am not as progressive as Ruth Bader Ginsberg), but I really do like our Constitution-it doesn’t have to inumerate each itsy bitsy right that the government wants to bestow on us (check the Communists constitutions from around the world and as much as they list right after right after right-they don’t have any).

Our founders knew from living under the whims of an all powerful “governement”, to just get out of our way and we will be able to govern ourselves…..if we had the moral integrity-which the government has been chipping away at for almost 100 years.

Coming Soon:  The Left’s obsession with Maslow’s hierarchy of needs……I think they have proven it wrong.
