The First Amendment to The United States Constitution provides all Americans with the right of free speech. Along with this right, we also have the right to view, read, watch and listen to content as we see fit. We believe if censorship is to occur, it should be the individual that makes the decision to do so for themselves and/or their own children. The American People do not need an entity of “higher authority” deciding for us what is or is not “appropriate material.” Intellectual freedom is precious, and we should all stand up for our right to make our own decisions.
Censorship is not only about media such as television, film, music, etc. It is also about big government and political agendas. It’s about art. It’s about the internet. In fact, censorship affects almost everything we interact with. Let’s be honest, any mainstream media outlets you may listen to or watch are censoring news stories, and “spinning” them toward whatever political party or special interest group they are affiliated with. This is just one example of daily censorship in today’s society.
Here at Censorship in America, we talk about these issues. We express our opinions and viewpoints. Most of our articles have to do with The United States of America, but we also write about issues in other parts of the world from time to time. We invite anyone and everyone to read our articles. We also encourage people to comment. We don’t practice censorship here, so if you leave a comment, it will be published in its entirety. The only time we do not publish comments is when it is found to be spam.

I definitely agree we should not be censored. To think what that would be like! After all of the freedom we have had, I feel like it would be impossible for government to censor our internet usage, etc. because of the number of riots and protests that would undoubtedly occur. Our country was founded on the basis of freedom, and I for one intend to keep it that way.
Very wonderful information, cherry oh!
Just a quick hello and thank you for making my site a featured site at Censorship In America. Your site is really cool and I’m glad to see we think along the same wave length.
I am also going to add your site to my lists of sites to visit as well.
Peace and take care,
Rick @ NMC
Thanks for the kind words, Rick.
I enjoy your site very much, and I subscribe by email. And like yourself, I am a one-man operation. When I started this, I did not realize how much time I would end up devoting to it. I’m sure you have experienced this also.
Take care, and thanks again.
Hi there, just ran into this site from reddit. It’s not something I would regularly read, but I liked your perspective on it. Thanx for making a piece worth reading!
Hey, I don’t know where to put this, but I passed along the “versatile blogger” award thing to you. You may have seen it floating around on WordPress, and maybe someone even already gave it to you it’s been going around for quite a while. Anyway, I like this site a lot, esp. for a political site because it presents facts and events as they are rather than sticking to some stupid party-line or liberal/conservative mudlinging crap. So I thought “versatile” was a good label.
Anyway, I wrote about the award thing here, if you’re curious:
Thank you for the kind words, I appreciate it. I will check out the link as I am curious. Thanks again.
