Freedom of Speech

“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” – George Washington

Use it or lose it. Defend every individuals right to freely express an opinion, and beware of attempts by any government that would try to silence opposition. Actually if you are afraid to speak when discussions of politics or religion come up, not only does it stifle your use of free speech but it can hinder your learning as well. Our public universities today desperately need to be stimulating thought instead of promoting liberal dogma and stifling debate.

“First Amendment freedoms are most in danger when the government seeks to control thought or to justify its laws for that impermissible end. The right to think is the beginning of freedom, and speech must be protected from the government because speech is the beginning of thought.” – Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy
