What does FREEDOM mean to you?

Its a real simple question but I found it interesting how many answers and for what situation each answer pertained to I came up with. I also found just by thinking of the question that all freedoms aren't equal. So, here we go "What does FREEDOM mean to you?"

^^^hmm never thought of that^^^

I started thinking of not only the freedoms we are born with but the freedoms we have to work for if we choose to sustain and obtain freedom.

that was from the cowboy poet, K. Kristofferson...and Bobby McGee.

Freedom is the ability to express and potentially achieve your dreams.

It's my fervent dream to become a benevolent dictator--you can trust me, really. I never lie or deceive...at least, not in my dreams.

Brave heart is a movie amongst men. I see that and want to fight back, but the bills keep coming.....LOL....

"Freedom is the ability to express and potentially achieve your dreams." Well spoken and one can relate to that statement.

"The freedom to take freedoom away from others" Another aspect of freedom I like.

I tend to think what types of freedoms cant co inside with each other? What kind of freedoms do we work for that complicate tips the scale for others to obtain freedom, and can freedom ever have a balance with us humans as we are? Its interesting, because money will free you up of things yet you loose other freedoms in the pursuit of freedom.

Would you consider a man who does not have to lock his doors and close his windows and hide his emotions and get dress to conform with what society considers normal to be free? I say yes, some say "Homeless"
