Free speech is the right to express your opinions out loud, in public or private, in print, by mail, or online. It is essential to democracy, and along with the right to keep and bear arms is the greatest deterrent to tyranny. The United States is unique in protecting a full right of free political speech under the First Amendment.
Leftists are the biggest opponents of free speech, as they demand liberal censorship of views they do not like, especially patriot, survivalist-prepper, conservative, libertarian, and Christian ones. Such views are often demonized in the liberal media with its media bias.
