    Freer than some. Not as free as others. Certainly freer than past centuries. There is still absolutely no excuse for complacency.

    Well said, Paschendale. I'm sure we have very different ideas on how to make ourselves freer, but I agree 100% with your post.

    And I think we'll have a better chance of finding the best ideas through dialogue and compromise, rather than talking past one another and refusing to bend. Compromise is something that we're sorely lacking in our discourse in this country.

    If only more, or possibly any, of our representatives had your mindset.

    Well, I'll prefer to know what your platform is first! Asides from the "willing to do even more than be in the same room as someone who disagrees with me" plank.

    The U.S. is free in many regards, which I cherish, and unfree in other regards, which I campaign against.

    It's all a matter of perception.

    Do you think that you live in a free country?

    If your answer is no then there's a problem somewhere.

    After G.W. Bush threw away a lot of money that is still flowing and a lot of U.S. and Iraqi lives, he said that Iraq was free.

    Take a look at Iraq. If that's anyone's definition of freedom, I don't want any part of it.

    Thank you very much, I'll pass.
