The dominant purpose of the First Amendment was to prohibit the widespread practice of government suppression of embarrassing information.
— Justice William O. Douglas

In October 2007, the Supreme Court of the United States declined to hear Mayer v. Monroe County Community School Corporation thus affirming an appelllate court ruling that teachers have no free speech rights at school. Free Speech Nation is dedicated to restoring the free speech rights of teachers and all government workers who have been silenced due to unconstitutional decisions handed down by the courts in recent years.



In summer 2006, the Supreme Court of the United States narrowed the free speech of government workers to the point of extinction. In Garcetti v. Ceballos, the high court ruled:

When public employees make statements pursuant to their official duties, they are not speaking as citizens for First Amendment purposes, and the Constitution does not insulate their communications from employer discipline.

The shorthand of this ruling is to say that government workers have no First Amendment rights at work. The effect of this decision is to abolish government workers' free speech rights during their waking hours. If we extrapolate on that just a bit, we could say that government workers have free speech rights while they sleep or in their dreams. This ruling is unconstitutional and an affront to the good intentions of our founding fathers who did not include this right in the body of the Constitution because they thought it so inherently obvious that they did not need to write it down.
