If you don't hurt anybody, in this great nation, are you FREE to BE anything you want?

I'd say pretty much yes because I can't think of any oddball exception right off the top of my head. We still have seperation of ideology and state.

Side: YES

With one caveat. It must be within the local and state laws AND the Constitution. It would be nice if was socially acceptable also.

Side: YES

It WOULD be nice if libs thought Conservatism was "socially acceptable", wouldn't it Al? I mean...we were just born this way. It's biology...Why would you hate someone because of biology?

It's because you're biologically stupid and were raised with an archaic value system and way of thinking.

Ideally, yes. Even if you want to be a loudmouth asshole that shuns the values of freedom that this country was built on, it is your right to do so, as long as you don't expect me to vote for you. In practice... well, we need to continue striving toward that goal.

1. define "hurt". 2. "free" from what...? God's Judgement? perhaps... :3

also does being in this nation make any difference? is this a religious question or a political one?? Morality =/= Ethics

Unfortunately the government has passed thousands of laws which can prevent peaceful people who aren't hurting anyone from just doing what they like and having fun. I enjoy making all kinds of alcoholic beverages yet if I get caught doing what I like to do I will be arrested.

Only if it fits this criteria: your 'freedom' does not contain among its prerequisites, obligatory indoctrinaiton of schoolchildren with retarded unscientific propaganda. I can't speak on behalf of americans, but this is my take on the situation.
