  • Okay, so I'm guessing this question is in response to your gas guzzler question and answers about freedom of choice.

    Most of us do have freedom of choice to buy the vehicles we want, the houses we want, the food we want to eat, etc. Some of the things we buy are limited by the money we have and for some the cost doesn't matter but we have the freedom to make our choices. They are people in other countries that do not have the freedom to make the same choices we, in America, do have.

    While gov't regulations may limit your choices, you usually have more than one choice available, ie "freedom of choice".

  • Carpy, I have family members I have never met in Cuba, because they are not allowed to travel freely, mainly because they know they won't come back, those who have freedoms take them sometimes for granted.

    That is sad, older. Hopefully someday it will change over there.
