Coercion and Civil Rights

Under what circumstances can the government coerce a person into sacrificing his/her constitutionally protected Civil Liberties? In a previous answer (http://www.lawguru.com/cgi/bbs/mesg.cgi?i=297387631), it was suggested that the government may (and they do) require a person to sacrifice certain liberties as a condition of using the airlines. Would the same logic allow the government to require that individuals refrain from criticizing the government or voting in federal elections as a condition of holding a drivers license (a privilege)?
