How far would you go...

Postby WWII History Geeks » Fri May 28, 2010 2:13 pm

To protect your first amendmant rights? Would you kill to keep them intact? Or at the slightest hint of debate would you give them up?

DISCUSS! :lol:
The goldfish crackers will win. Do you know why they smile? Because when they get inside you they start eating you from the inside out.

Grandtaria: "I would rather live my life each day thinking there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than to live my thinking that there isn't and die to find out there is."
Conservative Morality: "When in Rome, do as the Romans. When out of Rome, do as the Romans anyway, it's not like anyone is ballsy enough to piss off Rome."

Finally fixed: The thread may be gone, but I'm still a "To Hell with This'er!," damnit! :D

There's no point as we are already being oppressed.

Then would you kill to regain those rights? How important are they to you?

In this point in time it would be hard to topple a government of Western Europe or North America which takes your rights. Especially if they're united under one regime.

Not really, you just need to use a different method.

The only important right is the right to think. Not out loud. Just think. All the other rights are pointless.

Hmm, good question. Don't think I could kill someone over it, if I'm honest.
I do enjoy having an opinion however, as well as the right to express that opinion.
I guess I'd protest.

Once freedom of speech is gone, the powers that be can tell you what to think without a counter arguement.

I agree. the right situation has to come up. If I would have live in the time of Eugene Debs, I would have rioted for his freedom.

The First Amendment does not address firearms, firearms are addressed by the Second Amendment. Please stick to discussion on the First Amendment.
Any accident you can walk away from is one I can laugh at.
