Letter: We are no longer free

We are no longer free

Looking at the poll of "will the stimulus bill help," I see 67 percent say No. Why didn't the people protest it. Hillary went to China, a communist country, to borrow money for the stimulus bill. Which puts us even deeper in debt to China. Wonder what we had to give up to get the money. Sure makes us look bad.

For over a decade, The Wall Street Journal and The Heritage Foundation, Washington's pre-eminent think tank, have tracked the march of economic freedom around the world with the influential Index of Economic Freedom.

The results: We are now No. 6 on the world's most free country list. Hong Kong is No. 1. What a slap in the face that is. See: www.heritage.org/index/.

I would say wake up people; your freedoms are going away.
