The American Dream

The United States was able to defeat Nazi Germany and helped bring down the USSR, but is the U.S. government now quickly becoming just like them?  Once upon a time, America was the land of the free and the home of the brave, but today the government has become an oppressive monster that is intrusively embedding itself in our lives in thousands of different ways.  Today we are all viewed as potential threats to the “system” that the government has imposed, and therefore everything that we do must be watched, tracked, traced, recorded and controlled.

Lip service is still given to ideals such as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion and freedom of movement, but all of those freedoms are rapidly dying a brutal death.  To our forefathers, living the American Dream meant living as free men and women, but today it means living under deep socialist tyranny where the government takes care of us from the cradle to the grave and uses an increasingly oppressive Big Brother police state control system to guarantee our safety.

Checkpoint at gunpoint, papers please.The following are 20 signs that America is no longer the land of the free….

1 – Government trash snooping has now come to America.  The city of Cleveland plans to sort through curbside trash to ensure that people are actually recycling their trash.  If it is discovered that they are not recycling properly they will be hit with very large fines.

2– It is becoming increasingly difficult to express free speech online.  The city of Philadelphia is actually forcing bloggers to pay them $300 for a business license.  In this economic climate, who can afford to pay an extra 300 dollars just to have a blog?  So much for free speech in Philadelphia.
