"Since I believe all governments are inherently criminal (or, more precisely, tortious — since I advocate the abolition of criminal law and a free market for arbitration of disputes), I often get told to leave America. That’s rather silly, though. I certainly have no obligation to leave my home — any more than someone who objects to being mugged has an obligation to turn their wallet over to the mugger." ~Brad SpanglerYou’re free to leave America. Well… As long as you’re willing to do exactly what they want you to do. Every border in the United States of America is guarded. If you’re within 100 miles of any border, the government can do virtually whatever it wants to you. Of course, the fact that you happen to walk into that zone consents to your participation. If, you have the bold idea of using a plane to get out of the country. You’re required to go through poking and prodding of every inch of your body. No, your constitutional rights don’t apply there either. You have to be careful not to carry too much cash with you. And… God forbid… Don’t carry a full size tube of toothpaste! Free to leave seems to have a very odd definition to some people. Oh… And let’s not forget the fact that I need to get a passport. That passport costs a little over $100 (Yep… That’s free.) That passport is not even a guarantee of government. They can refuse to give me a passport for absolutely any reason they choose. If I don’t have this permission slip. They won’t let me out anyway. They can even take this passport for whatever reason they choose. Freedom. As long as they permit it!-From 7 Reasons You’re Not Free To Leave
