The First Amendment protects your rights as well as mine. Think about it for a second, if you didn’t have the First Amendment, where do you think you would be? We would be stuck in a world almost as bad as it is now.
Imagine a world where the police, government and citizens of society are making you an outcast and slapping on cuffs because of what you say and what you believe in.
The First Amendment was established in December of 1791.
Go back and continue to think for a second or two. What would you do without your right to peacefully assemble, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the freedom of the press? If President Obama or the next president vetoed the First Amendment do you know how much that would affect your everyday life?
You have to think about this amendment as not only a lifestyle to live by, you have to also think about it as one of the first things the government put into action to protect your safety and rights.
If there was no First Amendment there would be no such things as New York Times, LA Times, TMZ, Mediatakeout, or anything else we indulge ourselves in everyday.
The first Amendment is one of the keys to the way our Democracy works. Without the things in the First Amendment our country would be a communist government like Russia
The First Amendment should never be taken for granted and should be used as a tool for your knowledge.
