Disclaimer: This is journal about my personal opinions on the different aspects of the First Amendment.
Freedom of Speech: Freedom of speech is about the open dialog of people to voice their opinions and have open discussions. What this freedom does not cover is the proverbial shouting fire in a crowded theater when there is no fire. So when free speech disrupts public safety it can be subjugated. Hate speech is allowed under this freedom and people have to accept it that fact, but in my opinion the way to fight hate speech is with open discussion and education. People are free to their own opinions, but not their own facts. That is a discussion for another time.
Freedom of Religion: This freedom is about freedom from persecution for one’s religion. It is freedom to practice all religions and not just one's religion. There is a separation of church and state for a reason.
Freedom of Assembly: This should be obvious that it is a right of all americans to gather together.
Freedom of the Press: The press should not be suppressed even if it is unfavorable to the President. The press should be void of all direct political connections and influence.
Freedom of Petitioning the Government: Come one people need I discuss this?
