Land of the Free?

Friday not only brought in the new year, it dragged with it 40,697 new laws written by state legislatures.  This does not include laws passed by county or local municipalities.  This also doesn’t include laws passed by Congress.  This also doesn’t include laws passed in previous years.

How can the United States of America be called the “Land of the Free” when:

  • There are so many laws on the books that it is impossible to memorize ALL of them?
  • There are more Americans in prison then there are Chinese prisoners in China?
  • The “Tax Freedom Day” is later every year?

When the military returns from liberating Iraqis, maybe they can liberate Americans.
