FBI is on your cell phone. Do you care


John Adams lost the 1800 presidential election to Thomas Jefferson in large part because Adams, in 1798, pushed through Congress the Alien and Sedition Acts that punished any of the new Americans who stirred up "sedition within the United States" by speech or actions that brought the president or Congress into "contempt or disrepute."

The First Amendment had been ratified only seven years before!
