we usually rate tt by how many rights we are guaranteed by the declaration that makes us a country.....
let's see...you can't elect your leader, then you are not free...that takes care of the majority of the world.
If you pay so much taxes that it's not worth making any real money, you are not free....that takes care of about 1/3 of the "free" countries.
If you do not have the right to defend yourselves from a leader turned tyrant (i.e. the right to bear arms, freedom of speech)...that takes care of
the majority of the rest of the "free" countries.you listen more ot what other countries want you to do (I.E. a UN, lol) instead of what your people
want, you are not truely a free country.
Oh, and if there's a government run religion, you are not worshipping freely.
If you are a Christian and believe that either you serve God or Satan, then you NEVER had freedom in the first place, and the idea of freedom is an
illusion...lol...yet those same christians, whom are Americans, who know with all conviction that they are enslaved to one or the other, fight for
their freedoms...(I even do this, lol) We fight for an illusion...*shakes head*.....so ther'es got to be something to validate this diffrently....nto
really freedom but allowed rights?
