IS AMERICA LOSING THEIR FREEDOM OF SPEECH?
American’s pride themselves on being able to speak and say whatever they want about the government and the feckless elected officials; we BELIEVE that we have the Right (according to the constitution) to free speech. But, listening to Deutsche World news an hour ago,
the U.S. ranks 32nd when it comes to FREEDOM OF SPEECH, while FINLAND ranks 1 AND NORWAY ranks 2.
It seems that Finland and Norway are beating the U.S. on basic principles in which this country was founded on. Ranking 32 depicts that America is not the most free country, it depicts that this country is slowly losing its power it once had around the world and domestically. Legislation such as PIPA and SOPA that was defeated last year is a sign that the government is becoming more aggressive in invading the citizens privacy and is attempting to make American’s live more difficult.
