Statement on Free Speech
Our constitution and laws encourage the freest possible exchange of opinions, ideas, and information. In part, that recognizes our worth and dignity as human beings. To forbid us to speak our minds demeans us and makes us more like slaves or robots than citizens of a free country. But as important as freedom of expression is for us as individuals, it is perhaps more important to society at large.

December 7th Meeting # 485
Addressing a U.S. Constitution that Doesn't Work for Everyone
Lorraine Keed, a citizen of the United States of America, born and raised in Sydney, Australia, lived and worked on 3 continents, and ultimately retired from a long, professional career with Xerox Corporation. She has spent the majority of her life residing in Dallas, Texas. Although a proud citizen, Lorraine does have some issues with constitutional rights delivery to all citizens, despite various Amendments to our Constitution throughout our history espousing such citizen’s rights. Many Supreme Court rulings reinforcing/supporting constitutional rights have been thwarted by some States via work around legislation to abuse and/or not enforce rulings. Such actions have deprived many citizens the protections and equality stated within our country’s most powerful document/mandate. She also contends our Constitution is slowly and surely being hijacked by the minority, lobbyists/corporations, working directly for the fulfillment of their own greed, thus, resulting in further inequality for the majority of citizens. More alarming and more recent, our Supreme Court Justices and Federal Court Judges (Article III Judges) are being nominated and approved/not approved, based solely along partisan lines with a predetermined judicial agenda, whether nominees are fit to serve or not, thereby, potentially affecting the constitutional rights of all citizens for decades to come. Lorraine argues that these issues must be acutely realized, addressed, and rectified if we are to save our citizen controlled democracy from evolving into an autocratic fascist state.
