Amendment I "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." Do you think the Founding Fathers intended the First Amendment to include all of the vulgarity and obscenity that is filling our TV and radio mediums, or do you think they intended the First Amendment to protect political discourse and religious discourse? According to a FOX NEWS ARTICLE I read this morning, "polls show that many Americans now favor restrictions of some sort on free speech. It might happen. Perhaps it should. Perhaps restrictions are a price we deserve to pay. Perhaps the Founders would even approve. They gave us the First Amendment that we might rise to intellectual heights. Today, we invoke it that we may slop through gutters." Do you think that the Founding Fathers would have endorsed the freedom of expression philosophy that so many states allow?
