Live Free or Die

Give me liberty or give me death!

Unfortunately, these words are no longer cherished. We want safety and security (i.e., police state) over personal liberty. The various "Wars" we have today (Poverty, Drug and Terrorism) can be summed up as:
War of [police] State Aggression against individual freedom and responsibility
Various laws written to fight these wars (like takings law or Patriot Act) have all chipped away our freedom ensured by the Bill of Rights.

(I was inspired by the renaming of Civil War as War of Northern Agression or War of Southern Independence.)
