The bear through the barleycorn.
Problem is, do Americans still wish to be free?
I believe they do but it’s been decades since they tasted true freedom. It frightens liberals.
Pray for America
Freedom=personal responsibility+work... hmmmm, don’t like how that adds up... don’t want to have to work too hard and hey, “did I do thaat?”
...I don't think many Americans know what freedom is. They think freedom is the ability to move around relatively freely...period....but even this "freedom is coming under attack since the TSA has started stopping traffic in Tennessee just to be sure that there are not terrorists moving around.
Most people never realize that they do not "own" their property, they merely lease it for a while from some taxing agency. They never realize that their business are controlled by some "regulatory agency" and if they don't "volunteer" to be taxed, a man with a gun will come to their house and make you volunteer. A lot of people get uptight when it is proposed that the "mortgage deduction" be eliminated.
I could go on and on about lost freedom here...right down to the fact that our children who are attending public schools in NYC are now to be "instructed" in all forms of sexual activity, and the parents apparently cannot do anything about it.....
True freedom is a lost concept on most Americans these days....any tax system other than an income based tax, "progressive" or "flat" which would eliminate the IRS would be a step toward real freedom. The next step would be replacing property taxes with something else so that people's right to own property would be safe.
