Sort of anyway. There are still taxes. So not entirely free in all ways. Then again no human being who lives with other humans is entirely free. For what freedom we do have however we have to thank all those who have sacrificed to see that we received it..and then kept it. Most especially soldiers who risked and often lost their lives or limbs and made other sacrifices.
And please remember that if you want to act like an idiot and set off fireworks in your hand you are perfectly free to do so…but I would much rather you didn’t.
Have a great holiday!
