Hasn't been free in decades. THANKS, BABY BOOMERS!

And, btw, if you are a Baby Boomer and want to try and defend your **** generation, realize since you guys got in power, 1970s, the income of the rich? sky rocketed. The poor and middle class? No change (after inflation for both). The wars you guys seemed to be so against? You started two at the same time and then numerous military engagements. You deregulate wall street, you let corporations pay 0% in taxes through loop holes, etc. Your generation is the worst generation ever -_-

Edit: I want to join this lawsuit....

What? You can't take the truth?

If you're part of the Baby Boomer generation and said something like that, I have to laugh at your "maturity"

Everyone wants someone to blame for the situation in which we find ourselves. Everyone thinks that there just HAS to be a simple answer. Unfortunately there is not. The U.S. became "all powerful" because the rest of the industrialized world was more or less demolished in WW2. That gave the U.S. and edge. Unfortunately by the baby boomer generation, the Unions were mutating from legitimate organizations with the workers' interests at heart into bloated national organizations only concerned with the income from union dues and the political power they could attain. That combined with a series of **** Presidents put us on the precipice of a slippery slope. The attacks on 9/11 and the subsequent economic collapse pushed us over the edge of that slope.

There's no simple explanation, and there's no easy solution.

lol the US became very powerful because of the WW2 Generation. Aka the parents of the Baby Boomers. Baby Boomers came around and when they got into power look at the changes in the US. Look at how the Military Industrial Complex has grown, look at how the media and Washington have become far more right wing in a bad way where they are so pro-business (so little regulations there) but regulations on people's personal lives (abortion, drinking, drugs, and even freaking masturbation). And is it JUST them? No, of course some from the generation inbetween The Baby Boomers and The Greatest Generation and some from my own Generation and from Generation X are to blame, but when you look at the majority, the majority are baby boomers.

Sorry if you are one, but face the facts. Hell, my parents are Baby Boomers and will admit their generation ****ed up so hard from what their generation was about as teenagers and young adults. That they have royally ****ed up the country for their kids and grandkids and possibly even their great grandkids.

Want the truth, America always had slaves and indentured servants and Indian reservation camps. Never land of the Free.

The problem with America is we conveniently forget where we came from and what we really are. We're a nation born of blood, expanded through slaughter, sustained through blood, and ultimately too foolish to admit there is blood on our hands.

It's the republicans lowering the top marginal tax rate every time they get in office.

That and a military budget that isn't even explained by world conquest.
