what the fourth amendment fanatics fail to acknowledge is that the first amendment protects not only free speech, it protects anonymous speech. this nation was founded on anonymous dissenters. thomas paine's treasonous pamphlet Common Sense was first published anonymously. madison, hamilton and jay originally published the federalist papers under the pseudonym Publius. the supreme court continues to this day to uphold the honorable tradition of anonymous speech. in one supreme court ruling regarding anonymous speech, the justices wrote anonymous speech is needed to "protect unpopular individuals from retaliation and their ideas from suppression." over the next few months, i will become even more unpopular (move over goodwin).
i'm not equating myself to the founding fathers or my contribution to the federalist papers. i just see myself as a whistler blower publicizing the scandals and lies of the fighting dog advocates.
for now, i have my reasons for anonymity but i have no intention of remaining anonymous. until i disclose my identity, you can continue to call me craven or Toxic Publius ;) but if you refer to me as a denver attorney, your comments won't get through.
