Am I the only one upset about the attack on the First Amendment by the Department of Justice? This issue should be a top concern for all Americans.

There was a good reason why the Founding Fathers included freedom of the press in the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights. Without a free press to watch government at all levels, we will not survive as a free country. We will become a people that only know what the government allows us to know.

I believe this breech of trust by the DOJ was to intimidate whistleblowers. Leaks in government have been around since day one. There is no justification for this abuse of the First Amendment. This is an attempt at censorship. Could it be that we will never learn the truth about the Internal Revenue Service scandal because people will be afraid to come forward?

I have many questions on this blatant attack on our right to a free press. My real frustration is that I will never get answers from our government. I urge everyone to call or email their elected officials and demand answers on this important issue. We need to stop this attack on our Bill of Rights before it is too late.
