Poll: 33% Can’t Name A Single First Amendment Right

Painful!


Trey Sanchez | Truth Revolt

Thursday marked the 228th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution which took place in 1787. To commemorate the occasion, USA Today released a poll showing the percentage of the population who can name their First Amendment rights. And the numbers aren’t good.

Of the five rights covered under the First Amendment, thirty-three percent could not name even one of them. What’s worse is only 57% were able to name freedom of speech, clearly the most popular of the bunch. Nineteen percent named freedom of religion. Tied at 10% was both freedom of the press and the right to assemble. The prize for most overlooked goes to the right to petition, garnering only two percent. (The chart does not indicated how many were sampled.)

These abysmal findings aren’t the only ones of their kind. Back in July, MRCTV sent Dan Joseph to interview visitors who had just come out of the National Archives in Washington, D.C., home to the original copy of the Bill of Rights — where the people had just been looking at the document itself — and yet when they were asked to name their First Amendment rights, they couldn’t!

His man-on-the-street interview brings this poll to life:

    Well, there is no doubt that we need to remind ourselves of our God-given rights from time-to-time.

    More importantly, we need to appropriately teach the Constitution in our school system.

  5. I could name two off the top of my head: speech and religion. The way questions are phrased makes a difference in the results. For example, ask people if there is a Constitutional right to freedom of religion and almost everyone would probably say yes. Ask them to elaborate on what that means, and they will likely stumble. Ditto most of the other freedoms. Immigrants from third world countries don’t know any of this stuff and the more of them there are, the less informed the former USA becomes.

    On another note, I need to say that while I appreciate the dog shooting story that precedes this one on the homepage, I can’t bear to read and/or comment on those types of stories. I see those types of headlines on drudge all the time, but don’t click on them.
    It’s good that we know how disgusting police are becoming, but I am too disturbed to read the details.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.

Tom Clancy

If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
