You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".Who Links Here

"Ideals are like stars; you will not succeed in touching them with your hands. But
like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and
following them you will reach your destiny."
