Today in the USA is Independence Day. It is very encouraging to see that this and all the other threads on this website there is excellent debate. This is the way to go, having online posting and debate. As another posting pointed out, freedom is not free. What should be added is that freedom is neither free or cheap, but must be protected.

One of the best ways to protect freedom is to have this needed discussion and debate. To those who are Americans, have a wonderful July 4th.
