    My guess is that many people, both conservative and liberal, will find reasons to challenge parts of this they dislike.

    State means dirt with borders-lines drawn to identify itself as being "different".
    Freedom becomes FreeDumb. Not possible.
    Understand ? States even have their own flags to worship.
    Disgusting.

    I watched a pretty good Mel Gibson movie 2010 "Edge of Darkness" set in modern times. I had to chuckle about a line where the Gibson character reminds a government killer that "drinking wine in a park in Mass. is illegal". The response was "everything is illegal in Mass". I see Mass. ranked 46 out of 50 in so-called freedom values.
