I thought you deserved a ticket at 10 mph over the limit.. conversely I think that 10 mph under should carry equal penalties. (Fairness thing)
Freedom started going away in America as soon as politicians decided to make a profession of being in power, (notice they are mostly lawyers?). Power hungry lawyers loved the new Karl Marx ideology as it gave them the psychological tools to manipulate the uneducated.
By the way, Americans discussed the Constitution and the Bill of Rights freely until around the first world war, when political prisoners became the norm in America.

In my opinion there hasn't been any TRUE freedom since the Ten Commandments!! Check this one out...."Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife". Excuse me but, have you seen that woman in short shorts and a cutoff tanktop??

Some of my thoughts on freedom:
It used to be you picked up a dictionary and turned to the back and would find the Declaration of Independance! That is the one they really don't want you paying to much attention to. By substituting the government for refences to the king and most of it could still apply today!
The Civil war taught us that The United States is an exclusive club that you can join but can't quit!
"Absolute power corrupts absolutely!"
I fought for this country and would do so again....
