Whoa there (Off-Topic)

Oh please. Being told to shut up because your opinion sucks isn’t even remotely the same thing as changing the first amendment.

That's not what I'm talking about at all.

I know politics is verboten on this forum, so I'll only bring it up slightly in order to hopefully illustrate my point. In the United States it's fair to say, on the left/right political spectrum, we have a center right party and one a little more right than that. If you're outside that system you're essentially disenfranchised politically.

It's not even a hard thing like law. It's a soft thing - you don't get interviewed, you don't get talked to, no one cares. You can see this with how much trouble third parties have.

So to get back to Cody's point the erosion of our First Amendment rights doesn't have to be a frontal assault. In fact, that sort of thing never is. It's all baby steps until few even realized it's happened.
