The yank lifestyle, equipped on person liberty and constrained executive, is on lifestyles support.

American freedom is being gutted. even if we're attempting to run a enterprise, perform a vocation, increase our households, cooperate with our acquaintances, or stick to our spiritual ideals, we run afoul of the government—not simply because we're doing whatever improper yet as the executive has made up our minds it is aware higher. once we item, that executive can and does let us know, “Try to struggle this, and we’ll damage you. ”
