Born Free...a novel concept. And unheard of for many generations now. That is, now that we are viewed as "inventory". Restore the Republic.

    Liberty is given to mute animals, and kept by the animals' innate instinct to provide for themselves. The key difference between Liberty and opposing political philosophies is the individual right and duty to PRODUCE. WHen production is controlled and regulated, liberty is mute. Add funny money and 'credit' to the picture, and we consume until all produced is gone. Then we fight each other for the scraps like wild beasts. As long as we maintain the predator philosophy, there will have to be billions of slaves and chattel to live off of. Eventually we become the prey in such a world. The People must rise up.
