    Ben Sasse is firm on his stance. No shit talk out of Ben Sasse right there. I'm sure Ben Sasse's aroma is unique just from the looks of him.

    They have every right to free speech, yes. Just as the President has the right to not speak to them, and he reserves the right to bar them from his house as well. Being a member of the press doesn't give you the right to invade anyone's life, period.

    REMEMBER THIS DATE: November 6, 2018. That's the date on which 33 senate seats, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, and 14 governorship's will be up for re-election. Put it on your calendar now and be prepared to be an informed voter. If you are worried, concerned, angry, disappointed about the direction the government is going, this is the most effective way to make a change!

    I lost respect for him. I thought he might be one of the good ones but I was wrong.

    Guess what, Senator - Trump is merely exercising HIS free speech rights. And unlike the lying press, Trump tells the TRUTH.

    The first amendment does not provide for slander or libel as "protected speech". There's a difference between "difference of opinion" or "crappy journalism" and intentionally lying about someone. I think that's the real problem here....American media outlets intentionally lie for ratings.

    Repugs own the 700 club, Alex Jones, Breitbart, Dan Savage, Rush Limbaugh all lying for ratings broadcasters. They gaslight everything so people have no clue what to believe. Clean up your own party Sen. Then we can talk.

    This young man is a very smart person. He is a Republican, but that does not bother me. I believe he will be on a presidential ballot within the next 8 years.

    As much as I admire someone who puts country before party, Senator, your concerns fall on deaf ears. The president doesn't give a shit about the first amendment, and neither does your party's leadership. They care about their own power and personal wealth, nothing more.

    Bill Clinton created this mess by creating right wing radio and TV.

    Here is where you are wrong, "the only way the republic can work". American is NOT supposed to be a republic, its supposed to be a Democracy. So, "to the republic for which it stands" is wrong and a lie. Yet america moves like a republic.

    First and Second amendment are quite similar, in essence. You have the right to bear your weapon of choice, be it words or guns; however, you have no right to harm or even kill someone with them.
