I was thinking about what it would really take for us to lose our freedom. We always talk about how we lose our freedoms everyday with new laws that are passed... but here we are and I can still vote, can still get on a soap box, can still buy a gun. However, I think we all know its the little things that are being taken away from us.
I do think however that at some point we will lost our freedoms if we ever tie our monetary system with another country's. If canada, mexico and US decide on a common currency then laws will bridge. In other words, since the dollar would reign supreme, there would be cases were the grey areas of law between countries would deprive certain individuals of the inalienable rights.
That would just be the start and as more and more countries join this system or "one world gov't" , that is when we would really lose our constitutional rights.
