Posts Tagged ‘Freedom To Assemble Peaceably’

In honor of the Fourth of July holiday celebration, I would like to offer up the first Amendment to the United States Constitution:
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.
This Amendment “guarantees” five basic freedoms to the people of the United States, which the Federal Government should pass no law to abridge (reduce or restrict).  They are:
Freedom of Religion.
Freedom of Speech.
Freedom of the Press.
Freedom to Assemble Peaceably.
Freedom to Petition the Government for a Redress of Grievances.
The first ten Amendments to the Constitution are commonly known as the “Bill of Rights”.  Generally speaking, their intent is to restrict the government and formally guarantee rights to “people” or to “persons”.
