    How important is it to our country?

    should it apply to everyone?

    Extremely and Yes, even those with whom I disagree.

    But, please note, not all speech is free or legal. I can not holler "Fire!" in a crowded theater. I can not call a woman a bitch in public... well, now days I could get away with it. I can not call a very large group of black people (nor would I) the N-word in a derogatory way and expect to walk away unharmed.

    Free speech has its limits.

    So then there are limits by spelling ability in your mind?

    who else?

    Had you misspelled "Freedom", I would have been all over it.

    Evidently you don't carry a visible firearm.

    I think the Freedom of Speech should apply only to those that have something to say.

    I only support Freedom of Speech as long as everyone is pro-Obama. Since Obama is our new messiah, anti-Obama comments are considered blasphemy and the guilty should be burned at the stake.
