I live in the U.S. where we are supposed to be completely free, is that just an illusion that the government uses to make us think we are free? To me it seems are freedom is getting taken away slowly, and it is starting to irritate me.

I dn't think its an illusion. Freedom is inner beleif that u r free from everything, u r free to do nything in life, choose whtever u want to be, do whtever u want to do. There is freedom in everybody's life, and if u havn't realized it yet, u wud definately hav a feel of it soon.
