    that isn't how it works.

    We have no say in the laws or their enforcement.  We have a say only in choosing the people who make the decisions.  Even if our system were entirely untouched by any corruption, it would not give us a direct say.

    Which means if the First Amendment did not cover lies, somebody would have to be given the authority to determine what qualifies as a lie and is thus not protected speech.  And that somebody would not be all of us.
