The freedoms I cherish the most are the freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition, rights in criminal proceedings, and the right against unreasonable searches and seizures. The freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition is very important because people should be able to practice what ever religion they want without the government choosing for them. You should be able to say what you want in speech or in writing. I you don’t like something you should have the right to protest against it to get what you want. When you are accused of being a criminal, you should be able to get a fair hearing and be allowed a lawyer. If there is a witness, the witness should be allowed to defend you. You should be able to protect your privacy from the government and the police. They should not be allowed to do an unreasonable search of your property without a good reason.
