Definitely. Freedom simply doesn't have the same ring to it as it used to.
kinda. like since the 1940'sYour opinions on government
When you think about it, the purpose of all government anywhere is to be involved in, and restrict, personal freedom. Some of these we consent to for the good of society, others we see as intrusive.
If you're talking about the US government, it's important to realise there has never been a time when the government wasn't seen as being too involved in people's personal freedom. Americans, historically, have been both fond of lots of personal freedom and suspicious of government efforts to curb it. I think one can find periods of American history when the government was much more involved. I will say that technology has allowed governments everywhere to be much more aware of what people are doing, and to regulate public behaviour in ways previously unimaginable. But, much of the same technology that increases the government's power also increases the power of ordinary citizens. In other words, technology has made it easier to know what the government is doing as well as let others know what the government is doing, and get involved with it. Privacy and freedom aren't what they used to be for the state, either.What does freedom in the United States mean to you?
Yeah. But I mean You have to admit that sometimes our stupid disitions don't take us anywhere. In a part it's bad but then again I do agree they sre getting personal.Burma / Myanmar, should the UN get involved?
Yea, I would say the 90's were the best years.Is it true the government drops first-time offenders?
Sure, to me anything between consenting adults should be no business of the government. There should be no laws against recreational substances, prostitution, polygamy, or euthanasia.Specific examples of government corruption
Definitely. The longer it goes on the worse it gets. And if Obama has it his way it will get to be all government. The health care crap is just a start, he has talked about how he would like to see "redistribution of wealth" in America. That would basically mean you pay ALL of your money to taxes and they give you back how much they think you need to live. That way people working 80 hours a week get to pay for those sitting at home. And now owning controlling stocks in car company's. There is nothing free about our freedom anymore. Little by little the democrats are trying to slip socialism on us with out us noticing.where can i find a list of past and current governments (and the the names of the countries) and when they started and when they ended?
i would say that too...but u said it firstIs god going to let liars get away like the government?
What freedom? Our news is censured. Our internet communications are being monitored (in the name of national security). Our schools teach propaganda and lies. Freedom in America is long gone.What do you guys think about Russia and russians?
I don't think freedom is long gone, just minimizing every time..Why are people in the middle east all of a sudden fighting for freedom at the same time?
When you take a number and keep dividing it half, at what point do you say it doesnt exist anymore?Why is the government allowing more fast food restaurants to be built?
