The First Amendment Defense Act

  1. It seems to me, that if you need a special act that says regarding particular fundamental protections enshrined in the Constitution of the people: “Hey, Judges and Enforcers, we really would like to keep this one, ‘kay?” it’s pretty much toast.

    High time for Xians to “disinvest” themselves in their worldly citizenship, so it doesn’t hurt so much when it gets yanked. Time to embrace the “Pilgrim” moniker once more.

    Just my $0.02.
