Obviously I'm in favor of free speech

However I think you are either confused, or deliberately attempting to confuse with this appeal to the Constitution.

The Constitution does not grant rights. The Constitution was a conditional grant of certain powers and an unconditional denial of powers that impinged on our rights. Now it's of course meaningless.

I wouldn't oppose another Amendment saying "Congress shall pass no law impinging the freedom of speech and this time we really mean it" but I don't see what good it would do either.

You're begging men, who already told you to shut up, to let you talk. I don't think that's going to work.
