If you hate fake news media,
If you don’t trust religious fanatics,
If protests only fan the flames of rage,
You might be Anti-First Amendment?
But be careful with what you wish for,
Because if the first gets shoved,
The second won’t be able to hold it up,
And then comes the domino effect,
As you watch all the amendments fall down.
Without a life support system,
Our old constitution will die.
But are you also willing to bid goodnight
To your American Dream?

“(Our founders) created a document that built a representative democracy. Because the idea is: that our elected officials represent us, they don’t rule us, they have to listen. And in order to achieve this, you need the machinery for people to have their voice heard. However, it is the republican party that constantly seeks to attack the machinery for change—the method in which the average person can have their voice heard. This is why they suppress the vote, this is why they seek to criminalize assembly, speech, it’s why they attack the media—fake news. This is a method outlined by the founders, so the government can hear the opinions of the people—when it comes to petitioning for a redress of grievances. (Regardless), when it comes to the republican party you are always doing it wrong!”
Commentary: Don’t be deceived into believing, you don’t need the First Amendment. If you willingly surrender your rights, what makes you think, the government can be trusted—to not trick you—into giving up your Second Amendment, also. Even if you resist, it will be too late, because you’ve already forfeited your First Amendment—Freedom of Speech and Assembly protections. The forfeiture of our First Amendment, whether by coercion, deceit or choice is the greatest threat to our democracy! “When you take care of your first priority, everything else will be okay” or “When you do first things—first, everything else will fall in place. However, if you do second things—first, everything else will fall apart”. Our Founders were fully aware of how subtle government tyranny can be. We should all be grateful, that they were truly inspired, when they amended the Constitution with the Bill of Rights!
When the President was posing with the Bible in front of the church, was he advocating for our First Amendment rights? Why did the Secret and Park Police have to trample the liberties of the citizens that were assembled—were they blocking the path to religious freedom? Does he hate the Press or only when they catch him in a white lie? Has he really read the Good Book, even though he refuses to recite a single verse of scripture? So why did he insist in taking that inopportune photo shot? Could it be that he was simply campaigning for the values vote by showboating, that only he was willing and able to take a stand for prosperity evangelicals? And to make sure that incredible message was approved, he also had the Military and Attorney General back him up!
