Free Speech

Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak one’s mind without fear of the government punishing the speaker. The Bill of Rights, which are the first ten amendments to the Constitution of the United States, protects this right with the 1st amendment. This amendment was made in order to give American’s the right to speak against their government without fear of reprisal. This idea has been used to affect change for many years and has become a staple in American culture.
