    To me...it means that we had fledgling country that was insistent on being able to have it's citizens not only hold their own opinions of government, religion, lifestyle (literally anything) and be able to express those opinions without fear of retaliation from any ruling body. The idea of that freedom came from the lack of that freedom in pre-colonial European countries. One could be brutalized, imprisoned or killed for expressing their views and opinions of the ruling classes, the monarchies that held power Europe. It's an idea now that is in theory only now. In this "free" county of America, we have censorship and we have brutilization of those that take their free speech rights literally. You only have to look at what is being done to those free speakers and thinkers of the Occupy Movement.... http://www.salon.com/2011/11/20/the_roots_of_the_uc_davis_pepper_spraying/... The "freedom" is granted by a constitution and a government can choose to extend that right, but it can and also does, extend its hand to take that right away. The idea of freedom of speech is a false sense of freedom of life and it does not exist, not in our country nor in any other. I'm not interested in the freedoms dictated by a government nor a constitution of a country. I'm interested in the freedoms that life itself allows for all living beings, speech just happens to be one of them. A government cannot grant it to me nor take it from me, they can only punish me for indulging in it in ways that are not within the ruling body's status quo. To punish one for free speaking is to punish one for free living.
