[Ben]:Happy Fourth of July Discuss This [0 comments so far] View Comments
Today, take a few minutes to contemplate the meaning of Freedom.

Does Freedom mean the government is in charge of health care?
Does Freedom mean the government will protect your job?
Does Freedom mean the government should restrict firearms and drugs because you can't be trusted?

I really don't think so.

As I've said before:
Freedom is scary. Freedom means the possibility of failure. Freedom means consequences. For all that, I prefer freedom.

Freedom means being able to make bad decisions as well as good ones.

So, today, spend a little time and decide if you really support freedom - with the full understanding that it comes with an ugly side. If you don't, that's fine; I'm not going to try to change your mind today. Just be honest and don't claim that you're supporting freedom by making more things illegal.
