Freedom. Who said we have freedom? The Declaration of Independence? All that is, is a signed piece of paper. I guess anyone can say that we have more freedom than most countriesbut inside the country we are not too free. We have grown up sheltered, with help along side of us, by family members and friends. People say "You are free." I say "I can do as I feel.' If we were free there would not be any rules or laws. Lil Wayne the rapper said in his song "I N D E P E N D E N T do you know what that means?" Does anybody know what that word means? Independent means "free from outside control; not depending on anothers authority." Being free is being aline, being able to do as you feel without consequences. We might have freedom of speech or freedom of action but our actoons could turn into credit card transactions.
