“As an attorney, I never thought that I would consider repealing the First Amendment, which was instituted to safeguard our most precious freedoms: religion, speech and press. We apparently do not need it anymore. Under the present administration, no honor or respect is given to deeply held faith. Freedom of speech has been dispatched in favor of political correctness on college campuses and is spreading elsewhere in society, soon to be universally ignored. Freedom of the press was instituted to hold government and those in power accountable. The press is now so incredibly dishonest that it has forfeited its right to constitutional protection. Sorry to say, this valued amendment has outlived its usefulness, is no longer applicable to our society, and is abused and scoffed at by a mostly dishonest press. Let’s get rid of it. Sad (sigh).”Daniel D. Connor; Columbus, Ohio
