You are not even free to collect more than 10 lbs of meteorites on public
land anymore. Public roads (BLM Controlled) are being closed to the public
at an alarming rate. What good is public land if you are not even allowed
to use it? Crappy healthcare insurance at twice the cost is not my idea of
freedom of choice, more like socialism. I was forced to sign up my wife on
a Anthem plan because of the "Affordable Healthcare Act?" just to have our
account hacked three days latter compromising all of our personal data. All
we got was an apology letter from the healthcare exchange and a "free"
service contract for two years to ProtectMyID.com.
Then there is a thing called freedom of speech and privacy, both
consistently disappearing the last few years.
I forgot to mention the ridiculous tax increases which inhibits freedom by
making people work twice as hard for less income.
Freedom isn't for free!
Mike, you are consistently out of touch with reality!

What chaos? I must have missed it. I'm free. I just drove all over the
country with no problems. I was able to eat, drink and be merry. I got on a
plane and flew to China.
Name one freedom that has been removed from you.
