Open Letter to Senator Feinstein: First Amendment Cites FIVE Freedoms

7 July 2014

Honorable Dianne Feinstein

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-CA

331 Hart Senate Office Bldg.
Washington, D.C. 20510

Senator Dianne Feinstein, I understand you are teaming with Senators Durbin and Schumer to promote an amendment that would essentially nullify the chief freedom of the First Amendment to our Constitution – the Freedom of Speech.

Our First Amendment features guarantees of five freedoms:

  1. Freedom of religion
  2. Freedom of speech
  3. Freedom of the press
  4. Freedom of assembly
  5. Freedom of petition

Herewith I quote the First Amendment in toto:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Take note that the Freedom of Speech is distinct and separate from the Freedom of the Press. The former is for all citizens; the second just for “professionals”. Capice?

Contrary to your statement, the First Amendment RIGHT of Freedom of Speech is not a privilege, but a right.

For your convenience, I point to the linked terms highlighted in blue. Find definition, amplification and explanation of those terms, by clicking on them. I trust you find this helpful to enlighten you on the history and purpose of the First Amendment.

Your amendment attempts to nullify freedom number 2 (see above list). This is an unconstitutional amendment, Senator, as per the first clause of the First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law…”

I call upon Texas Senators Cornyn and Cruz to resist and openly oppose this amendment.

I invite you to withdraw your poorly conceived amendment.

As a citizen of this great country and a blogger, there is nothing you do can stop me from exercising my Freedom of Speech. This blog posting is one of hundreds, an exercise of my Freedom of Speech.

Sincerely,

  1. Take note that the Freedom of Speech is distinct and separate from the Freedom of the Press. The former is for all citizens; the second just for “professionals”. Capice?

    I would say that with the Internet “Freedom of the Press” has been expanded to all.

    1. Your idea is sound, and most certainly the Internet has invited and empowered citizens to exercise their free speech right.

      However, I always refrain from interjecting technology into Constitutional arguments, because liberals use advances in technology to say the Constitution is out of date.

      Our Constitution was crafted using timeless principles that are immune to technological advances.

      Thanks, Jack.
