Free country?

Sixty years ago I was born into a free country. Not absolutely free, since everything is a continuum, and we have been sliding toward bigger and ever more excessive government for at least 90 years.

Nevertheless, I consider it my birthright to live in a free country. This means being able to conduct your affairs with little interference from the government. It means that the burden of government is not excessive.

We have reached a point where a very sizeable group of people advocate socialist policies that wouldn't have been entertained by either main party in past decades. If these people win, then we might as well throw away the constitution, which is already being ignored because the federal government has far exceeded its enumerated constitutional powers.
