Free speech just isn’t that complicated

I think everyone would benefit just a little more if we all stayed out of each others' business. This idea that we need to regulate how people tall and, to an extent, think is terrifyingly close to the concept of 1984.

Americans used to believe in freedom.
Now Americans would need to be mentally ill to think tyranny won’t get worse.
Who would have thought in 1980 that the USA would soon have curfews, gun bans, NSA wiretapping, checkpoints, forfeiture, the end to the right to silence, free speech bans, torture, kill lists, no fly lists, searches without warrants, private prisons, mandatory minimums, 3 strikes laws, DNA databases, CISPA, SOPA, NDAA, IMBRA, FBAR, FATCA, TSA groping, secret FISA courts, and Jade Helm?
During the Wild West in the US, everyone could carry guns, businesses were not licensed, no one had Social Security numbers, there were no sales, income, or property taxes, and drugs, alcohol, smoking, gambling, and prostitution were legal.
There was little government, yet people lived and had freedom.
The government today is regulating every area of everyone’s life.
The government wants to tell us what to do, what to think, where to live, how to live, what to wear, and what to eat. Saying you live in a free country with a straight face is difficult when everything is illegal.
How can anyone take the moral high ground on anything when we are all criminals?
In the US, your body is not your body, your property is not your property, and your kid is not your kid.
Government is not the solution to problems. Government IS the problem.
Alcohol prohibition failed. The Soviet Union failed.
Anyone who supports the police state is just a tool for the elites.
Too bad Americans are surrendering liberty so easily.
Why did the USA fight for freedom against the British, Hitler, and Saddam if America just ended up as a police state? All those American soldiers died in vain.
The elites are trying to weaken and divide Americans by race, gender, handicap, penalizing hard work, encouraging welfare use, and pushing immorality while using fear, terrorism, drugs, false flags, discrimination, hate speech, Russian propaganda, and fake news laws, and wars on cash to make Americans give up their free speech rights, religious freedom, guns, right to silence, privacy, property, right to trials, freedom from torture, and the freedom from extrajudicial assassination.
Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
Pass the word.
