When do you cross the line that divides freedom of speech from treason?


Does anyone remember treason? It's the only offense other than murder and kidnapping that is punishable by death. Most people justify inappropriate statements and accusations as freedom of speech when in actuality, they don't know what that amendment means.

    I'm with you, but again that raises the question about the bounty in Florida for Zimmerman and the threatening speech by Farrakhan.

    Thx for a fact-f'ld parsing of the wide gap (in US law) btw'n "unprotected speech" and "levying war against (The US), or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort". Not at all akin to falsely yelling "fire!" in theatre, a misdemeaner.
