support free speech

From the Introduction to the CATO Handbook For Congress:

The chapters in the fourth section deal with a troubling trend in contemporary policy: a growing infringement on civil liberties in America. From the Communications Decency Act to proposed "anti-terrorism'' measures, from the restrictions on election-related speech to intrusions on our privacy, from the frightening assaults at Waco and Ruby Ridge to the narrowing of protections for criminal defendants, the federal government is restricting too many of our traditional freedoms. Both liberals and conservatives should be concerned about the intrusion of federal power into every corner of society.

...There is no higher duty for members of Congress than to remind us of the constitutional limits on government when we forget them.
