c. Equal protection under the law is based on the Fourteenth Amendment.

2. Five freedoms are expressly guaranteed by the First Amendment.

a. All five are extremely important.

“In the understanding of the founders, it was a ‘self-evident truth’ that

every human being, simply by virtue of having been created by God, had the same rights as any other. These rights were regarded as ‘unalienable,’ which meant they could not rightfully be taken away.”[1]

of Assembly, and Justice Frank Murphy’s understanding of First Amendment protection for all three.

I. Freedom of Religion is based on the First Amendment’s allowing its free exercise.

“In 1942, in Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire, the Court undertook to say which speech is not free speech—i.e. is unprotected by the First Amendment.” [2]

B. Freedom of the Press

“The central function of the press is most evident when the press discloses information about government, especially information that the government wishes to keep secret.” [3]

C. Symbolic Speech

“For First Amendment purposes, there are three kinds of conduct: (1) conduct that has no communicative value, (2) conduct that is purely communicative and (3) conduct that has a mix of communicative and non-communicative elements.” [4]

III. Freedom of Assembly is based on the First Amendment’s forbidding Congress to restrict citizens from assembling freely.

A. (First Sub-point with quote and citation)

B. (Second Sub-point with quote and citation)

C. . . . etc.


There is no doubt but that America is the freest nation on earth.

“Today, in part because of the First Amendment, no nation conducts its politics more freely, and no nation has more freedom of expression.” [5]
