Define "free man".As a free man, the right to be safe should be based on my desire to be safe.
Not some snot nosed politician just graduated with a degree in Liberal Art.
The Bill of Rights and Constitution do not spell how one is kept safe, but it does provide tools to do so.
Hmmmm, true freedom only exists if you are alone in the world. We are not. We cooperate with others to define how we are all going to live within whatever geographical borders, as a society. The people of a society define the rules and rules constrict freedom. We are not free. Especially if married.Its defined as Me. It is actually that simple.
The person defines the level of freedom, not the government.
The words of the Bill Of Rights and the Constitution do not say the government sets
this standard, the people do.
