There are things that government cannot do that might interfere with our freedom in Ohio, and there are also rules that citizens have to follow to create order. There is freedom because there are certain rules that the government cannot break. Rules such as the police need a search warrant in order to search through your phone, your house or your car. There are rules that government cannot stop you from printing things you would like to print. Our right to press protects that. This means that citizens are allowed to print anything that they want without government being able to stop them. If we didnt have freedom of press, then people would not get to express their ideas in newspapers or magazines. Citizens also have freedom of religion. Citizens have the right to choose their own religion in which they can follow without anybody telling them that they cant. People also cannot tell citizens what religion they must follow, our rights protect our freedom to choose. This is how there is freedom in Ohio's government. There is also order in Ohio's government. Things such as tax regulation, speed limits, and laws provide and protect order in our state government. Speed limits provide order because you can't freely break them whenever you want to. Without them, people would drive at any speed they wanted to and that could be extremely dangerous and many people could get hurt. Tax regulation also provides order. Tax regulation makes sure that everybody in Ohio pays their taxes. If we did not have these tax regulations, some people may not pay their fair share of money and then government would not have enough money to pay for roads or schools. Laws stating what you can or cannot do also provide order. Laws saying the drinking or driving ages are especially important. If there were no laws against these things, then small children would be allowed to drink and that is putting everybody at risk. This is how there is order in Ohio's government. Laws, tax regulation, and speed limits create order and freedom of press, freedom of religion and and search warrants protect our freedom. This is how Ohio creates a good balance for the citizens so that we are not too given too much freedom or restricted by too much order. Sources:
