Wow, great. Why don't you try living here before you actually bash us? You talk like you understand how easy it is to rise against without living in America.
I can guarantee my family, didn't build the life and money they have from virtually nothing being idiots or sitting on the couch. This is the crap you're being fed because you don't live in American. Stop generalizing. It's offensive.

Can someone name a large, 1st world nation with more freedom and less government involvement into the lives of its citizens than the US?

Each year the Heritage Foundation and the Wall Street Journal compile a list of the countries in the world and rank them on how "Free" they are.
It turns out that the United States is not the most free country in the world. World Rank
1 Hong Kong 90.0 +0.3
2 Singapore 87.1 -0.2
3 Australia 82.6 +0.4
4 Ireland 82.2 -0.3
5 New Zealand 82.0 +1.2
6 United States 80.7 -0.3
It is a sad day when the United States, the light of freedom, is not ranked number 1.
We are being overrun by policies that seek to strip away the freedom from our hands. This would be a credit to over regulation of free enterprise and governmental intervention.
When does the Revolution start?
