Great link unfortunately "our dear leader" believes the opposite but as everyone can see the wheels are beginning to fall off of his little farce as people are becoming more knowledgeable as to his true intentions. The guy is evil and the anti christ.

Think about true Liberty for a second. When you go to work and give up your liberty by becoming part of the corporate culture and doing what the boss says to do. 30-40% of your income goes to taxes, that is, you liberty is yanked right from under you by taking your hard earned cash and using it without regard to your efforts in making it. You come home and are obligated to pay extra for soccer fees, music lessons, high mortgage premiums, etc. Insurance costs, city tax, sales tax, red lights, parking tickets all amount to a relinquishment of liberty. Yet we call our life free and liberated. Liberty sounds good on the surface, but we may be subject to more slavery (albeit voluntary) than we think.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
