    We certainly aren't the home of the brave. We have become a nation of cowards. scared of poverty. scared of foreigners. scared of environmental catastrophe.
    Your always going to have radical leftists like that......I don't believe a huge majority of the population believe that and I sure don't.

    the nation has moved left. The incorporation of the bill of rights has made our constitution so convoluted that nobody really agrees anymore on how to interpret it, which means we aren't a nation of laws. We are a nation of powerful men arguing about the law and changing it to fit their agenda.

    I could present a list a mile long of all the ways we have moved away from being a free society.
    1. I see no reason to carry a concealed weapon...I have weapons in my home and that is sufficient.

    2. that is a way to your state to get revenue.

    3. It depends where you work.....Most companies will contribute to your retirement........

    meh America is about as free as most other countries I have visited and lived in, only major difference is that they give you more flags to wave and songs to sing.

    Our country is not perfect that is true but like I said I am visited over 100 countries in my lifetime and ours is the best by far.....

    freedom isn't defined as being allowed to do the things Navy Pride thinks I should be allowed to do.

    2. that is a way to your state to get revenue.
    slavery was a way for people to get revenue too. It is patently anti-freedom however.

    3. It depends where you work.....Most companies will contribute to your retirement........
    I am speaking about forced retirement as in social security.
