Shocking: A Whopping 40% Of Americans Cannot Name A Single Right Guaranteed By The First Amendment
A sad state of affairs… this is really a failure of parents, schools, and society to teach our children. This is what happens when liberals control our public schools and parent don’t speak up.
The scary thing is the number of people that are okay with the government taking away their first amendment rights since they have no clue what exactly they would be giving away.

The Freedom Forum Institute has released its annual “State of the First Amendment” (SOFA) survey, and the results paint a dismal portrait of the American electorate.
The survey of 1,009 American adults was conducted in May and June of 2018 by the Fors Marsh Group in partnership with Lata Nott and Gene Policinski of FFI. The survey has a margin of error of 3.7%.
When asked to name the freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment, only one person was able to name all five. 2% of respondents were able to name the right to petition the government for redress of grievances; 12% were able to name the right of peaceful assembly; 13% were able to name freedom of the press; 15% were able to name freedom of religion; and 56% were able to name freedom of speech.
A whopping 40% of respondents couldn’t name a single freedom guaranteed by the First Amendment. More
Why are we paying our hard earned money for public schools?
This is how DemocRAT socialists/communists have gained a foothold. The dumbing down of America is their goal!! Unacceptable!

No one should doubt the abject failure of public education in America. Our schools are failing to provide a basic education in reading, writing, math, science, history, and civics. This failure threatens America’s security ~https://t.co/TvCtWn4LVG
