Bill of No Rights?

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution is a part of the United States Bill of Rights. It prohibits the federal legislature from making laws that establish a state religion or prefer a certain religion (the "Establishment Clause"), prohibit free exercise of religion (the "Free Exercise Clause"), infringe the freedom of speech, infringe the freedom of the press, limit the right to assemble peaceably, or limit the right to petition the government for a redress of grievance.
Having said all this, I would refer you to a previous Post here about a blogger from ketucky: In this case the Judge refused to dismiss the charges against Gov. Ernie Fletcher.
This led to an interesting question posed by Digital Nomad:

Should we have to risk imprisonment for stating our views about Policies, politics and our Elected Official? Is this a direct violation of our First Amendment Rights? What do you think and what is the fuss all about anyway?
