What Does Freedom Mean To Americans
The definition of freedom has changed. For most Americans freedom used to mean having the ability to think for themselves and to be independent in their actions.
In the new America, freedom now means, being able to think for oneself and do what you want, but, if something goes wrong, the government must be there to support me. That is disturbing. Self responsibility in this country is gone. And when self responsibility goes, freedom goes too.
Government rules have been accepted because government has made everyone believe that no one can take care of themselves. What a joke.
War For Freedom
Wars have been fought over the freedom to keep America independent.
The Revolutionary War was fought against a powerful enemy for the purpose of escaping tyranny. The revolutionaries fought for freedom. Many good people have lost their lives in other wars over the history of this country for freedom; so why are Americans today who enjoy that freedom so willing to toss it away and allow government intervention into their lives? Could it be because it’s easier?
Never Give Up Our Freedom
To give away your freedom you have to be willing to be a member of a group. Today, belonging to a minority group requires you to give up your free thinking and follow the group thinking.
- Women group issues requires you to be one-sided and think only about women issues.
- Non-white groups require their members to be one-sided and only think about issues against the whites.
- Illegal immigrant groups require group thinking to protect against the majority of legal citizens who have been in this country for generations.
The one common element all these groups have is the members get a “feeling” of belonging to something; being a part of a group; someone cares….blah, blah, blah.
Freedom is having the ability to think and do for yourself; group thinking takes away from that. Group thinking requires you to agree with the group for the good of only the group….little one-sided, don’t you think?
