    You may enjoy different kind of liberties in different countries.
    This is my biggest discovery connected with the immigration.

    Depends on what kind of freedom you mean. If you mean mob criminals free to ply their trade as long as they bribe the police it may be Russia. if you mean free to live on foodstamps and welfare without ever contributing a single thing to society, it would probably be USA. If you mean free to start with nothing and work your way to a successful life it would also probably be USA, at least for now. In the future, maybe not so much.

    Until the legal drinking age goes back to a relaxed 18, it isn't the USA. HH

    Thailand. If you have money you are free to do pretty much whatever you want and can pay for.

    Not really. All you need is a passport, visa, and letter of invitation from a permanent resident.

    Not too mention that even T.V here is extremely censored compared to other countries.

    They haven't changed that much. Someone willing to work hard can still make a damn good life for themselves.

    Absolutely. But I think that applies to many other countries too.

    But "Oh" you say, "Alaska isn't a country, it's a state."

    And I say you're right, but one of these days we will be.

    Hong Kong is the most economically free thanks to years of benign neglect under British rule.

    The less populated, less developed and poorer the country the more freedom (with a lot of exceptions of course for brutal dictators etc).

    The more people chant about their freedom and how free they are, the more loudly I hear their chains rattling. – George Orwell

    Do not mistake the false freedoms of same sex marriage and legal marijuana with our surveillance and high tax society.

    If you are working the majority of the year to pay taxes you are not free.

    When every move or financial transaction you make is monitored you are not free.

    Somalia is a libertarian dream land. No government to restrict your freedoms at all. But there are a few downsides....
