Why do so many US citizens

not GET the 1st amendment?
"Freedom of speech" was never about being rude, bad mouthing, or cart blanch hate speech.
Your founding fathers made the 1st so that you could speak out about your elected leaders, your Government, without fear of being hung or beheaded, as what happened in Britain when people complained or spoke out about their "God Given" matter how atrocious their behavior, or wasteful their spending.
I hear folks bleat on about the 1st all the time, yet they have no real concept of it, how it works, or how it is suppose to work.
If the citizens of the US used the 1st PROPERLY, they could overthrow their corrupt governors.
