Yes, no doubt
I don't know
No, not at all
I don't care
Or just enough crappy punk rock to feel like anarchy is just awesomeness.
"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
2. That is a horrible comparison.
3. I retired at 60 and starting drawing SS at 62 and loved it.........Most are not forced to retire that early.

I find it hard to believe SS alone is sustaining you. You draw a pension from your job of serving the country for many years, but that is beside the point.3. I retired at 60 and starting drawing SS at 62 and loved it.........Most are not forced to retire that early.
A free person would be allowed to risk not saving for retirement as they throw that money into a business instead. That is how it used to work when the country was closer to actually being the land of the free and home of the brave.
For me, an important issue of freedom in the country is gay rights. Another issue is incorporating territories such as Guam and Puerto Rico so they can have a bigger voice.
Overall, I think we are more free than we were in the past. We certainly have more rights. Integration, interracial marriage, disabled rights, and even speech we have earned more. How free were we in the 1950s? Free not to live under policies we don't like? Sure, say what you want about Obamacare but it is not an issue of freedom as some try to make it out to be. Like I said, we have bigger freedom issues plaguing this country. People use the word freedom to attack their political opponents but they fail to demonstrate a knowledge of what it means.
1. It goes hand in hand
2. we will have to agree to disagree.
3. Of course I have other income...I planned for my retirement when I was young never expecting to see SS. You just can not let people throw away everything they have earned because they then become dependent on welfare and my taxes....

You can’t claim to live in a free nation when you allow fear of poverty to undermine liberties.You just can not let people throw away everything they have earned because they then become dependent on welfare and my taxes....
Listen my liberal comrade, self respecting conservatives don’t call investing disposable income towards a business as throwing away their earnings. That mentality of yours is a major tell in what you really think.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
We're not as bad as Nazi Germany or Stalinist USSR, but we're an extremely, extremely anti-freedom nation. You can be arrested and put in prison for a long time for using a drug that the government doesn't approve of, even if it's for medicinal reasons and no one else is hurt. 18 year-old adults are denied the right to even buy alcohol. We are not sexually free. It's illegal to buy or sell sexual services or for gays to marry. Our wonderful Patriot Act means you could be arrested and held without charges and no attorney if the government uses terrorism as an excuse on you. With gun ownership, we have better freedom than most nations, but you're still not allowed to own a fully automatic assault rifle such as an AR-15 or an AK-47 (except for very expensive grandfathered ones).
Our representation in government has been hijacked by corporate bribery that destroys the value of our votes. Both parties are beholden to their bribes from corporations, making them put the corporations first and the people second, and the Supreme Court validates this absurd arrangement with the worst ruling since the Dred Scott decision.
Are we the land of the free? Are you F'ing kidding me? If I were giving us a letter grade, I'd give us a D. The only reason it's not an F is because countries like North Korea exist.
