Craig from San Francisco asks – “I’ve read several articles saying that some of the same “alt-right” groups that protested last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia are staging rallies in San Francisco and Berkeley this weekend. Can’t these rallies be stopped?”
David from Albany writes: “Chris, I am strongly opposed to President Donald Trump. I’ve been highly critical of him on social media. Friends of mine have told me I need to be careful what I say, cautioning to tone down my anti-Trump comments. Can’t I express my views on the President as I see fit?”
David, yes you can. What makes America great is that, as expressed by President Abraham Lincoln, we have a government of the People, by the People, and for the People. Under the First Amendment to the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution it is our right to speak out and peacefully assemble in protest to the government.
