    And why do you think so?
    I'm very impressed with the results of this thread. I am in the minority. If you ran another thread that ask this question:

    When did America have the best balance of Freedom and Safety?

    I would have answered with the majority. I did see some good points though. I guess the economic freedom is the part that has changed for the worse but that isn't as big a priority according to the results of this poll. Either that or my view of the world is a little skewed. I can also see why women or blacks would have a different perspective. Their economic freedom is better today than during other parts of U.S. History.

    This is a very good poll and a very good thread. Good job Glen Contrarian.

    That does make sense. It's probably smarter to expect insults in the future. Compliments are pretty rare around these parts.

    That is a really good question. I am going to think about it.
