    Do We Live in a Free Country?

    We are told we live in a free country. "Land of the free" yada yada yada. Simple question: "Do we live in a free country"?

    "Free" is a range, not an absolute. There are levels of freedom. No country has zero freedom, no country has 100 % freedom. The US is above average in terms of freedom.

    I do not have the right to keep and bear arms, I do not have the right to privacy, I do not have the right to organize and peacefully protest (see whats happening RIGHT NOW in Ferguson)

    No, I'm not free.

    There isn't an area in all of society that government isn't involved. No, we are not free.

    A thread revolving around an undefined term is a pointless thread.

    Define "Free" or this is just a waste of space.

    Freedom isn't free. You have to exhibit some courage to keep it. If you let yourself be intimidated or you are too busy and resent investing the time and energy or you expect someone else to defend your freedom, you just surrendered it.
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    Notice something similar about any post a Libertarian makes with threads like these?
