You have your mass surveillance, your government operates prisons within prisons, units designed explicitly for the holding of political prisoners,
on American soil...
Your country operates an illegal jail at Guantanamo Bay, which should never have been opened.
Your country is the king of mass surveillance, invades the privacy of all its citizens, despite the fact that to do so without a warrant describing
what they are looking for in fine, narrow detail, and naming specific persons, as opposed to area codes, is unconstitutional.
Your government, your Federal Reserve, are both, one way or another, privately owned and largely unaccountable bodies, over whom the people have
absolutely no real power.
Tell me again, how valid that claim of freedom and liberty is? Its bogus. Either everyone has freedom and liberty, or no one truly has it. Either the
government do not infringe upon those liberties and freedoms without probable cause, or you do not actually have anything other than NOTIONAL freedom,
a pretense of liberty, not the actual stuff itself.
As long as your government has more power than the people do, you may not claim that your nation is freer or more possessed of liberty than anyone
elses, because it is still a tyranny.
