What is Freedom?

The most important freedom we have here, in America, is the right to piss off our government. That is the freedom that we need to protect above all else. It is that freedom from which all other freedoms stem. It is the true difference between us and North Korea. If I can’t insult Obama without legal charges or spit on the American flag without being executed, then I have no freedom because if I can’t do that, then it’s not much further before I can’t say things like “The tax code is unfair” or “going to war with Iran is a stupid idea”. In a way, the most “patriotic” thing you can do is be “unpatriotic”.
