    Freedom is a beautiful thing and I was reminded of that once again today when I did a Chinese women a favor ( literally she is from China) and it was for her Doctorate studies. I replied to a topic in a blog for her. But I also criticized the government by saying that the nanny state has done a million times harm than good to the people. She having lived in China for 26 years up until the last 6 months thought that I could go to jail for such a comment. Wow and she still believes it is terrible after I assured her. You see this is what I want to avoid here in the US!! We must exercise our liberties or we will lose them.

    Aren't you like, the third dumbest dude on this site in its entirety?

    Anyway, every action from chewing to walking to your mailbox has a subsequent consequence.

    Any and all laws are the antithesis of freedom, and also a lawless society is the antithesis of freedom. Freedom can't exist, so long as we are to co-exist.

    Nanny state is a kind of paternal government that says it will care for you and you being care for give up all your freedom to the caretaker. Its like living with your parents. No matter how much freedom they may give to you the fact that they pay for everything gives them control over you. Human nature doesn't change whether that is growing up with your parents or being a citizen of a state. Need produces dependency which leads to willfully giving up your freedom.

    We have an overweight liberty problem, more exercise of liberties is needed.

    Ain't you the first dumbest dude?

    Wait. Did you just say that laws are the anithesis of freedom and lawlessness (a state of no laws) is the antithesis of freedom?

    I try not to let my mind be formed by societal tradition and taboo, but think outside the box which helps just a little bit in becoming less controlled.
