Yo Dawg, We Heard You Liked Freedom

Do you like freedom? Does it rankle you that every damn thing in this country requires permission? Do you refuse to fly on an airplane because you consider full-body cavity searches an outrage? Do you fervently wish that all the government agencies would just get the hell out of our way?
Or do you believe any outrage is justified if it "keeps us safe". Maybe you haven't had the cops break down your door in the middle of the night and think it can't happen to you. Perhaps you liked inflation when it seemed like your house kept increasing in value, until your house's value halved and the prices of things you need seem to keep climbing.
But certainly, how could anyone object to Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment Comp, constant wars, food stamps, welfare, or building departments? How could anyone be heartless enough to toss a crippled old timer out in the street without food or shelter? And damn it, the people of Iraq need a functioning democracy. Never mind that you don't seem to be able to save for your old age because of all the taxes.
At what point is enough enough?
