What's UNIQUE about the US, is that FREEDOM IS the default??

Hello:

The BRILLIANCE of our Constitution, is that FREEDOM IS the default. 

Therefore, it makes perfect sense to BEGIN each one of the Bills of Rights with the words: CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW...... 

IF they started listing ALL the behaviors that SHOULDN'T be covered by the Constitution, then NOBODY would be covered..  In other words, if you're not free, then NOBODY is free..

You get that, right?  This is basic Americana.

Excon, it's a stupid and BORING thread. That is why no one is responding to your thread. What are you even asking about?!? My G-d, you are weird. Your original posts are always uninspiring.

The obvious irony being that when called upon to respond to a debate, the right does respond, and when they call on you to respond to a debate, you ignore it indefinitely for eternity.

Hello hater:

Just not gonna give up the ghost, huh?

First off, I don't challenge anybody.. They post, or not. But, if I DID challenge you, do you think to yourself, boy, I better get on it, cause excon expects an answer???

No... No, you don't. Because to suggest that you OWE me a response would be STUPID, STUPID, STUPID.

What are you talking about? At one point blacks were slaves, but whites were free. The point doesn't even make any sense. Is it supposed to?

Yet you still lick the boots of the party that forced businesses to close, demanded you wear a mask, and demanded you get a vaccine that the Democrats themselves said was dangerous and rushed just months before. Are you trying to convince us that you're stupid? If you are, you're doing one heck of a job.

If you still think the US is the "land of the free," you're either willfully ignorant, or too young to know better. Freedom requires a high-trust society, meaning the people trust the government, the government trusts the people, and people trust each other.

Social solidarity has eroded so greatly in the US over the last century that the only "freedom" people can point to anymore in this country is in the letter of the law -- which is the lowest form of freedom IMO.

What good is freedom of speech when private companies can simply de-platform you on the government's behalf? How can the "land of the free" have the highest known incarceration rates in the world? How many cameras do you think film you on your way to the store these days?

The US is not uniquely free. I wish it was, but it's quickly becoming just another nanny-state, like all modern democracies.
