America has become an angry nation. We are angry with each other. We have lost sight of the fact that by our Constitution and the Bill of Rights, we have the freedom to say what we believe; to speak openly against unwelcome governmental policies; to worship openly without fear; to defend ourselves if necessary without risk of imprisonment.
So someone asked me yesterday when freedom of speech crosses the line and becomes treason.
Good question. I did some research, and here’s a good definition:
18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
