Is There An American That Knows What Their First Constitutional Right Is?Submitted by Christopher A. Brown on Sat, 11/02/2013 - 23:50
I refer to a right as something Americans have a right to use. There is a reason and purpose to these threads.
At the thread titled, "Can One American State The Purpose Of Free Speech?"
we learned that Americans not only do knot know the purpose of free speech, most cannot accept the logical root definition of its purpose. Or, maybe they do, but simply do not state that they accept the notion that the purpose of free speech is to assure information vital to survival is shared and understood.
Please clarify your position on the purpose of free speech here if you can accept that it is to assure survival. This is vital in the process of root usage of our first constitutional right which is the only strategy that can wield the authority to make the changes needed.
About 3 got close, some good points were made which were answered relating to the absolute need for free speech related to survival. There were a number of posters who were mostly unaccountable citing legal definitions of all sorts of the right. There was quite a bit of semantical confusion between; purpose, meaning, reason, right, ability and legal.
Generally a very low level of accountability, but, I do want to acknowledge a few posters that really saw into the exercise. Particularly Absolute Rights who saw the fundaments immediately and posted acknowledgement.
This is not rocket science. In fact, children need to be able to understand it.
I have a great deal of experience on forums with this subject matter and have asked the first question about the purpose of free speech, purposefully, because it is not our first right.
Now, what is our first constitutional right?
A clue, we need our second constitutional right, free speech, to properly use our first constitutional right. Is there an American that knows their first constitutional right?
